The COVID-19 pandemic has underscored the need for scientific investigation of the effects that public health guidance can have on U.S. society and the economy. The health and well-being of individuals, communities and entire regions of the U.S. can be fortified through fundamental scientific insights into how public health guidance is created, distributed and perceived by people.
With that context, the U.S. National Science Foundation and the Social Science Research Council are holding an informational webinar on November 29 about advancing scientific understanding of public health guidance and its impacts on individuals and communities.
“Understanding the effectiveness of public health guidance through social science research” will feature perspectives and insights from Arthur Lupia, NSF assistant director for social, behavioral and economic sciences; Anna Harvey,
president of the Social Science Research Council; and Heather Lanthorn, program director for the Social Science Research Council.
The event will be held on Monday, November 29 from noon-1 p.m. Eastern time. While free to attend, registration is required. The event will be held on Zoom and live captions will be available. Please see links below.
