Are you ready to shape the future of health communication?

The Society for Health Communication logoThis post was written by CH alum, Amy Behrens. 

It’s official: The Society for Health Communication has launched! The Society is the first professional, member-driven organization to bring together health communication practitioners, students, and scholars from diverse backgrounds — including government, industry, nonprofits, and academia. Maybe even YOU.

The Society will serve as a place for all health communication professionals to generate and share best practices (including some related to health literacy) and discuss new ways to push the field forward. From the get-go, there will be a big emphasis on networking through in-person and virtual meetups throughout the United States and abroad.

“Becoming a member is a great way to expand your network of health communication colleagues,” says CH President and Society Steering Committee member Stacy Robison. If you’re passionate about health communication, consider becoming a founding member. The Society will begin offering standard membership in early 2016.

To stay up to date with the Society’s activities, follow them on Twitter (@healthcommsoc) and sign up for the mailing list to get the latest information.
