Welcome to Communication4Health!

This blog started as a collaborative effort in early 2013 by participants in a graduate course  (Advocacy and Communication in Global Health), taught by Kitty Corbett in the Faculty of Health Sciences at Simon Fraser University in Burnaby / Vancouver, Canada. It has since served as a forum for students and their work in other courses I teach about advocacy and health communication, knowledge translation and exchange, implementation science, social marketing, media advocacy, health promotion,  social mobilization, interdisciplinarity, engagement, communities of practice, occupational and environmental health, planetary health, and the constraints and possibilities of higher education / academia for pursuing meaningful lives and promoting the health of all. The list is growing.

If you find something here that you would like to use – please feel free. Please credit our site and the author of the specific piece you draw on as the original source. (Note that I do not edit what is posted; the work is entirely the student’s own.) Thank you!

Kitty Corbett
