We're Building a Movement. Join Us!

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.

The Society is a community of health communication professionals coming together in appreciation of science, reliance on evidence, dependence on clarity, and anticipation of equity. Through our work we are exchanging best practices, building meaningful connections, and advancing the field. The Society isn't just an organization; it's a movement.
