BI and Tsinghua University: Health journalist class in Beijing

Blackmores Institute was proud to partner with Tsinghua University to run a health journalist class on 24 May in Beijing, themed “Chinese Career Women’s Health”.

This is the second health journalist class Blackmores Institute and Tsinghua University have conducted together as part of their long-term relationship and mission to translate evidence-based research into effective health communication to help foster natural health literacy.

Facilitated by the Health Communication Institute of Tsinghua University, the class was attended by about 25 journalists from prominent daily and health media.

Participants examined the latest research, including a Green Paper on the health of Chinese career women jointly authored by Tsinghua University and Blackmores Institute. They translated the evidence into a health communication proposal to be entered into the Blackmores Institute-Tsinghua University Natural Health Communication Award.

“We are excited to continue working with the Tsinghua University’s International Center for Communications on a series of health communication projects to support the Chinese Government’s Healthy China 2030 vision, which acknowledges the importance of healthy lifestyles and prevention rather than treatment,” said Dr Lesley Braun, Director of Blackmores Institute.

The Natural Health Communication Award aims to encourage media to deliver effective health communication to raise natural health literacy. Women play a critical role in the health of society, with this year’s topic being the “Health of Urban Career Women”.

The best three health communication proposals will win a scholarship worth 8,000 RMB to conduct further research into this topic. All media and journalists are welcome to submit their proposal before 12 June 2019.
