​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Are you a public Health professional or a researcher wondering if there is an effective way to influence people’s behaviors, such as safe driving, family planning, cancer screening, or even voting?

How can you market healthy eating, tooth brushing, recycling, as if they were “brands” or products?

 How can you convince people​ to stop smoking without imposing a smoking ban?

Social Marketing can answer these questions (and many more) and provide you with tools to address a broad range of health, environment, political, and social issues!

The Center for Public Health Practice (CPHP) and the Department of Health Promotion & Community Health (HPCH) at the Faculty of Health Sciences (FHS) at AUB, offers an interactive executive workshop on Social Marketing in Public Health.
