Promote your research findings
Has your Heart Foundation-funded project been published recently?
Find out how we can help you get your work noticed.
As a researcher, you’re a vital part of our mission. That means the more people that hear about your work, the better.
But research projects often fly under the radar. We know every research project improves our cardiovascular health knowledge, but they don’t always get the attention they deserve.
Unfortunately, the media don’t look at collective evidence. They want stories to tell so they tend to focus on individual projects, which gives you an advantage.
But you’re just one person and there’s a lot of white noise in the media on the topic of health. So how do you get your research finding noticed?
That’s where we come in. We have a strong and experienced media unit that can help you get your project in the press. We’ll take any opportunity to promote your work and we can also help with any tricky media questions.
Our media activity gets your work noticed, as Natalie Fini discovered.
"I just wanted to say thanks so much for the recent media opportunities you have afforded me – it has been such an amazing opportunity!"
She contacted us about the completion of her award, with her research finding that stroke survivors spend around 80 per cent of their time sedentary despite the known benefits of exercise.
What’s more Network 10 also ran a story in their evening news bulletin on 29 July 2017. A reporter and film crew came and interviewed Natalie at her workplace, which was exciting, although a little daunting, for her. But our tips helped her feel comfortable.
What Natalie said
“I just wanted to say thanks so much for the recent media opportunities you have afforded me – it has been such an amazing opportunity! I will be doing a podcast next week for the Stroke Foundation’s ‘EnableMe’ website for stroke survivors and this has all come from the media release you recently did. It is just great to get the message out about the importance of physical activity after stroke.”
What we did for Natalie, we can do for you too.
