The Community Engagement Core uses infographics as one way to translate and disseminate research. An infographic is a visual representation of information, data, or knowledge, relying on images and graphics to convey the main messages, rather than words.There are several free software packages that can help design infographics, and freely available icons that are appropriate for infographics.
This page highlights our current infographics. All infographics can be downloaded as a PDF and used with appropriate attribution.
Infographics are developed with stakeholders, to include community partners, government and regulatory agencies, and scientists.
Infographics are designed to distill research concepts down into 3 main messages, using graphics to convey the information. Infographics are developed for a general audience, with the ultimate goal of increasing awareness and increasing knowledge.
A concept is first developed with the three main messages, a color scheme and potential graphics that support the messaging.
The infographic is designed following the guidelines of the CDC Clear Communication Index, and evaluated by stakeholders.
