The Society for Health Communication

As health communication professionals, it’s our responsibility to step up in times of need to provide clear, accurate, and actionable information. Without a strong community, the field of health communication risks becoming disconnected and diluted, resulting in duplicative work, slower progress, and a disparate workforce.

At the Society, we’re bridging silos to unite professionals in public health, health care, academia, hospital communications, and telemedicine to share resources, exchange best practices, and advance the evidence base of the field.

To meet today’s urgent health communication needs, the Society is offering individual membership at no cost for a limited time. If you’re a health communication professional interested in networking, best practices, advocacy, and training, join us! Become a member today.
