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.

About the Summit

About the Event

Last year, nearly 80 Society members came together to network, share ideas, and renew their commitment to work together to advance the field of health communication. This year, we're expanding the presentations and interactive discussions for more opportunities to see examples of what's working in the field and how you can apply it to your work. At the Summit, you’ll have the unique opportunity to:

  • Learn what’s working in health communication through inspirational examples and practical tips.
  • Network with others in the field across the private, public, and nonprofit sectors.
  • Shape our field by developing best practices for health communication.
  • Participate in shaping some of the Society's ongoing work
