Communicating About Disparities to Achieve Health Equity

February 24, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Society for Health Communication

Communicating about health can be a challenge, especially to those populations disproportionately impacted by disease. Access to care, social injustice, and health disparities further complicate how health communicators ensure that health messages are accurate, accessible, timely, and culturally sensitive.

The Society is pleased to present this conversation about the critical role health communication plays in improving health outcomes and addressing health disparities. Panelists will explore practical approaches to developing and delivering health information that raises awareness, changes behavior, and helps achieve health equity.

Confirmed panelists include

  • Belinda Gaston, Principal Associate, Health Communications, Westat, and Founder, Comms Noire – Moderator
  • Kim Blessing, Vice President, Kauffman & Associates
  • Alison Rodden, CEO, Hispanic Communications Network
  • LaTroya Hester, Director of Communications, Center for Black Health and Equity and Founder, Comms Noire
  • Leisha McKinley-Beach, National HIV Consultant

This free webinar will be held on Wednesday, February 24, 2021, from 12:00 to 1:30 pm CST.
