September 1, 2020 1375

How can leaders encourage their community to adopt COVID-19 protective behaviors? This upcoming webinar will discuss promising strategies from the behavioral and social sciences to make the adoption of protective behaviors against COVID-19 more likely.

New guidance from the Societal Experts Action Network (SEAN) helps decision makers understand strategies to increase adherence to protective behaviors to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. The webinar will address strategies from communications, social psychology and behavioral economics as well as lessons learned from successful public health campaigns like tobacco prevention and seat belt use.

The free hour-long webinar occurs at 4:30 p.m. ET on Tuesday, September 8.

Featured speakers include:

  • Dominique Brossard, co-author of the guidance and professor and chair in the Department of Life Sciences Communication, University of Wisconsin
  • Wendy Wood, co-author of the guidance and Provost Professor of Psychology and Business, University of Southern California
  • Ron Carlee, assistant professor of public service at Old Dominion University and former county manager of Arlington, Virginia.
  • Robert Groves, co-author of the guidance and provost and Gerard Campbell Professor Department of Mathematics and Statistics and Sociology, Georgetown University

SEAN aims to link decision makers with social, behavioral and economic science researchers who can provide evidence-based expert guidance that supports local, state and federal policies and responses related to COVID-19. The network, an activity of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine that is sponsored by the National Science Foundation, responds to the most pressing questions and provides rapid, actionable responses.
