About This Year’s Conference

It's 2024, and we continue to fight one of the most pervasive and dangerous illnesses to have infected mankind.

We’ve suffered this disease much longer than COVID-19 — for as long, in fact, as we’ve tried to convey ideas.

We’re talking about health communication, a discipline that’s been plagued by any number of challenges. Misinformation, technical jargon, and complex language prove frustrating to some … and terminal to others.

This year’s conference focuses on identifying the things that get in our way, the things that prevent easy communication.

Because once we understand the barriers, we’re in a better position to overcome them.

We’re in a better position to address the “dis - ease” in communication.
