The Society for Health Communication

We bring together health communication professionals, students, and scholars to create meaningful connections, share knowledge across disciplines, and advance the science of health communication. The Society is a member-driven organization that relies heavily on digital media to unite the field, bridging the gap between public health, healthcare, digital health, academia, and research. If you share our interests in networking, best practices, advocacy, and training, we hope you'll become a member today. We're changing the way health communication professionals collaborate, and we want you to be part of that movement.
