The CDC Foundation wanted to create positive health outcomes in low- and middle-income countries by helping participants develop their scientific writing/communication skills.

Our team:

  • Reviewed existing materials and reworked the workshop curriculum.
  • Developed two virtual, instructor-led trainings from the existing materials, creating an engaging experience with interactivities to support learning.
  • Tailored courses to engage and support audiences including English-as-a-second language learners and participants with low-internet speed.
  • Created “train the trainer” resources for facilitators.

Mind & Media took a vast expanse of existing materials, from PowerPoints and instructor guides to tutorials and supplemental documents to create a five-week Public Health Bulletin workshop.
