Part of health communication is working with unexpected, non-traditional partners to share health messages in innovative and engaging ways. The “Outbreak: Epidemics in a Connected World” exhibit at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History is just that. This novel exhibit communicates about infectious disease outbreaks to the public using interactive multimedia and gamification.
The 2018 American Public Health Association Annual Meeting is in a few days, and we cannot wait! It’s not just the location (the beautiful San Diego) that’s got us stoked, but it’s also the sessions.
Here are some of the health communication, social and digital media, health informatics information technology, and social marketing sessions that we’re planning to attend.
HOW TO USE THE SESSION LIST -- Look up the numbers for the sessions you'd like to attend on the APHA Annual Meeting online program or mobile app and add them to your agenda: https://www.apha.org/events-and-meetings/annual/schedule. This way, you'll be notified if the locations and/or times have changed.
From the Field: The State of Black Health 2018 and the 2018 National Conference on Health Communication, Marketing & Media
We’re recapping two 2018 health conferences: the State of Black Health (SBH), hosted by NAATPN and partners, and the National Conference on Health Communication, Marketing and Media (NCHCMM), hosted by CDC and partners.
There were great nuggets of knowledge being dropped at both. We were so inspired, that we wanted to share a post summarizing key takeaways for health communication professionals.
