"Quantifying the Role of Communications in Behavior Change: Presented by Defense Health Agency and FleishmanHillard"

Register today for this webinar
Join Paul Fitzpatrick from the Defense Health Agency and representatives from FleishmanHillard (FH) to learn about the research-based approach of the award-winning That Guy campaign to reduce binge drinking among junior enlisted service personnel across all services. Launched by the Department of Defense (DoD)/Defense Health Agency (DHA) in 2006, the That Guy campaign uses evidence-based practices and a peer-to-peer communications strategy to highlight the short-term, social, and reputational consequences of excessive drinking. The DHA/FH team will discuss how the campaign utilizes multiple research and measurement tools to track increases in awareness, shifts in attitudes, and changes in behavior related to binge drinking.
