HealthComU is a blog where passionate health communicators across the United States come to connect and collaborate online. We discuss ideas with our peers, share the latest industry news, and learn from each other’s personal experiences in the field. Dedicated to improving health outcomes and messaging through transparent conversation and driven by a shared goal of affecting real behavior change regarding health, we wish to be your home for everything you need to know about health communication.

HealthComU was founded in November 2013 by a group of distance-learning graduate students and alumni of a Master’s program at Boston University. Accustomed to working together from a distance, Christine, Julie, Kristin, Payal, and Lisa manage this blog virtually—driving conversations with a diverse mixture of culture and professional backgrounds.
