Time and money are spent by organizations to create messages that try to change attitudes and behaviours about heart disease, but we don't really understand how people look for information and what they do with it once they find it. We also don't know what women's 'gut reactions' are to the messages - what is the immediate emotional response when they are told to be more active or to reduce their stress? Our research addresses these questions and we are using the answers to try to create better messages that reflect women's needs in relation to their health.
