The C+MRC will be joining NAMLE to commemorate the 5th Annual National Media Literacy Week during October 21-25, 2019. We have a number of events, podcasts and resources to share. Check back regularly for updates.
Join this discussion to avoid the perils and pitfalls of truthiness in health information and what we as health information-seekers can do to be more health media literate. We'll also identify the responsibilities of health news reporters and editors in conveying health-related research findings to the general public.
Meet (and interrogate!) broadcast legend Bob Garfield, whose Purple Project for Democracy will be all around us in for the entire month of November.
Flipping the script is a popular media literacy technique that reframes the ageless "happily ever after" fairy tale. This podcast episode features Rapunzel (Susan Hagen) from the irreverent musical comedy "Disenchanted!"
October is Health Literacy Month. So it seems appropriate to title this podcast episode, "Disorder-ly Conduct: Is Gamer Addiction a Thing?" To loiter with me around this question is my colleague, Dr. Christopher McKinley, who specializes in health communication and media effects in examining the role that messages play in shaping individual’s health perceptions and behaviors.
