A Mental Models Approach to Risk Communication for Private Well Testing

In this webinar, Dr. Gibson will provide insights on her work that explores the mental models approach to risk communication to design an intervention to increase private well water quality testing in peri-urban neighborhoods without water service. This approach gathers data on beliefs and knowledge of the target population, compares them to expert knowledge, and designs the risk communication to include the most prevalent knowledge gaps and misconceptions that are also the most decision-relevant ones.

Speakers
