Who We Are

The Stanford Health Communication Initiative is an interdisciplinary effort bringing together experts in social media, psychology, theater arts, business, and medicine, from across Stanford University and around the world.

We work with peer schools, including the Dalla Lana School of Public Health at the University of Toronto, partnering to train scientists and healthcare providers. Our CME courses equip providers and scientists with toolkits for working with journalists and translating technical language into compelling stories for lay audiences. Our Paths to Publishing trainings help scientists launch public-facing projects such as blogs, op-eds, podcasts, films and books.
