SciComm success

From our early days working on strategic communication for zoonotic diseases to our experiential training program, SciXchange, the HCRC believes that all good health is based on good science.

Some of our scicomm successes include:

  • SKIP the Salt: Translating scientific research on sodium consumption to increase hypertension awareness among African Americans in Kansas City.
  • Ozioma!: Using reactance theory to frame messages to African Americans across the United States who were at risk of cancer.
  • SciXchange: Training students and early-career scientists on ways to collaborate and tell their stories for media through the SciXchange project.
  • Smith/Patterson: Establishing the national Smith/Patterson Fellowship program to train tomorrow’s science and health communication experts today.
  • Treepple: Developing algorithms and an editorial process to create health news stories based on mind science.
  • Sound Science Research: Uncovering the sound science in popular media, as well as non-governmental organizations own communications, using a validated reliability index.
