Registration Open for Kentucky Conference on Health Communication

Published: Mar 14, 2014

LEXINGTON, Ky. (March 14, 2014) — "Health Communication Partnerships" is the theme of the 13th biennial Kentucky Conference on Health Communication (KCHC), which will be held April 11-12 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in downtown Lexington. KCHC is an internationally recognized venue for researches, practitioners, and graduate students from health communication and a variety of related disciplines with interest in health promotion and disease prevention to share their work.

 

The overall goal of the conference is to promote health communication research and practice in order to advance understanding of behavioral and communication science. The conference is hosted by the University of Kentucky College of Communication and Information.

 

“I’ve been involved in planning KCHC conferences since the beginning,” said Nancy Harrington, professor of communication and associate dean for research in the College of Communication and Information. “It’s wonderful to see how the conference has grown in size, scope, and reputation. We attract scholars from across the United States and as far away as Switzerland, Israel, and China. KCHC has the reputation of being a high caliber yet collegial conference where everyone from graduate student to senior faculty feels welcome.”

 

A pre-conference is scheduled for April 10 that will address "Message Design in Health Communication." The pre-conference will feature four invited speakers:

  • Shelia Murphy, University of Southern California, Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism;
  • Robin L. Nabi, University of California, Santa Barbara;
  • Daniel J. O'Keefe, Northwestern University; and
  • Xiaoquan Zhao, George Mason University.

 

The conference opens Friday morning, April 11, with a keynote address by Dr. Larry A. Green, the Epperson Zom Chair for Innovation in Family Medicine and Primary Care, Department of Family Medicine, School of Medicine, University of Colorado, who will share his considerable expertise in health-related community and institutional partnerships.

 

The remainder of the conference will include 65 papers, 73 posters, and two panels. An awards luncheon on Saturday will close the conference, during which this year's Lewis Donohew Outstanding Scholar in Health Communication award winner, Jeff Niederdeppe, from Cornell University will speak.

 

Conference and online registration information is available at http://comm.uky.edu/kchc/.  The priority registration rate deadline is March 27.
