The Department of Communication at George Mason University provides a rigorous academic experience for students with opportunities to network with top minds in the discipline. The D.C. Health Communication Conference (DCHC), organized by the department and the Center for Health and Risk Communication, recently brought graduate students, as well as early to senior level scholars, together to hear about the latest research and advancements within the field through panels and roundtable discussions. This year’s theme was international and global health communication research.
Over the course of three days, the more than 200 attendees were invited to participate in a grant writing boot camp with National Institute of Health officers and grant writing professionals, attend numerous panels on current health communication research, and view poster presentations by senior and junior level scholars, as well as graduate students from more than 100 institutions. Dr. Anne Nicotera led the planning process as chair of the DCHC Planning Committee. “DCHC has become the most important conferences in the field of health communication,” she said. “Putting it together takes a group effort of our department’s faculty, staff, and graduate students. Everyone pitches in.”
