What is community media? What are the advantages of engaging community media when disseminating health research? When and how should you engage community media? This online workshop will cover the basics of community media in Chicago, and will focus on practical ways for health research institutions and community-engaged health research partnerships to utilize community media when connecting with communities and sharing findings. We encourage health researchers and members of engaged health research partnerships to attend (also open to community stakeholders and communications staff at health research institutions). Speakers will include Jhmira Alexander (Executive Director, Public Narrative), Yazmin Dominguez (Coordinator, Chicago Independent Media Alliance), Jesús Del Toro (Editor-in-Chief, La Raza), Maudlyne Ihejirika (columnist/reporter, Chicago Sun-Times), and Jackie Serrato (Editor-in-Chief, South Side Weekly).
