Reading Room LNCO 2120
This presentation will discuss current efforts to expand the National Cancer Institute's Health Information National Trends Survey (HINTS) research program from the US to other parts of the world to address global health communication issues. The first major expansion of the HINTS research program was the implementation of HINTS-China in 2012, with ongoing efforts underway to introduce the HINTS research program in Germany and other nations. The need for rigorously collected, representative international health communication data for promoting public health will be explored. Strategies for leveraging HINTS data to expand knowledge, address local and international health issues, and facilitate collaboration in promoting global health will be discussed.
