Who Should Attend

We welcome anyone working in or dedicated to the field of health communication. Our mission is to bridge the gap between public health, healthcare, digital health, academia, and research. If you work in communications, behavior change, health literacy, or related fields, we want to engage with you at Summit!

What Our Attendees Had to Say

We asked participants at past Summits to describe the benefits of attending, and here's a small sampling of what they had to say:

  • “Collaboration and new ideas generated – fantastic day!”
  • “Hearing about the variety of topics and diversity of sectors.”
  • “It’s a candid approach to the challenges facing the field.”
  • “Opportunity to hear the issues that others are concerned with.”
  • “It was inspiring to see people from so many areas come together and share their passion for HCOM.”

Past Summits

In May 2020, 300+ health communication professionals attended our 4th annual (and first virtual) Summit. The interactive discussions included presentations from leading researchers and practitioners on navigating the COVID-19 response, understanding the role of health communication in public health crises, building health literacy, and tactics for evaluation during a crisis.
