what we do

BMSG conducts research to learn how the media characterize health issues. Through media advocacy training and consultation, we help advocates harness lessons from that research and develop the skills they need to shape journalists' coverage of health issues so that it illuminates the need for policies that improve the places where people live, learn, work and play.

BMSG's work is rooted in collaboration. We partner with a wide variety of organizations and individuals to build the capacity of advocates, public health professionals and community decision-makers to achieve common health goals in areas ranging from violence prevention to food and physical activity.
