Health Communication’s Virtual Learning Series

Texas Oral Health Coalition

Each self-instructional session below is worth 1.0 CEU for dental continuing education credit. These sessions are meant to view as a series, but each session is offered as a standalone course. As part of the evaluation process, self-instructional courses contain post-training questions so learners may assess his/her mastery of the material.

This learning series is a product of the Texas Fluoridation Campaign, funded through a grant from the Delta Dental Community Care Foundation, in an effort to provide detailed information on how to create successful health messages to improve health outcomes.


Matt Jacob Speaker Bio

In 2016, I formed Jacob Strategies LLC, a consultancy that focuses on the communications, training and marketing needs of public health stakeholders. I concentrate on translating complex, scientific content into messaging that is clear, concise and compelling—and comprehensible to policymakers or the lay public. I have delivered training related to communication and marketing for oral health stakeholders in more than 15 states. Previously, I managed communications and marketing activities for the Pew Children’s Dental Campaign and the Children’s Dental Health Project. For more than 20 years, I have helped nonprofits and advocacy organizations raise the profile of their issues, particularly in the areas of health and education. I have provided testimony or presentations to a variety of leading public health organizations, including the American Public Health Association and the Institute of Medicine’s Roundtable on Health Literacy. Over the years, my communication efforts have been recognized or honored by a variety of organizations, including the Association of State & Territorial Dental Directors, National Public Health Information Coalition, and the New York Times.
