The NC TraCS Institute, in collaboration with Wake AHEC, and Greensboro AHEC, proudly co-sponsor a series of FREE workshops on research topics. The next workshop in the series is Communicating Health Information.
The Communicating Health Information Workshop will introduce participants to the concepts of health communication, dissemination, and advocacy and demonstrate the role that each plays in improving community health.

By the conclusion of the workshop, participants will be able to:
- Define health communication and its role in individual and community health promotion
- Describe strategies to identify and reach a specific audience
- Create or access health communication materials for a specific audience
- Locate important health information to describe or justify the health issue and strengthen the health communication
