The New "E" Word: Equity Science

We've launched a new HCTS course, Equity Science, Health Equity, and Big Data featuring Dr. Ashani Johnson-Turbes, Director of the Center for Equity Research at NORC at the University of Chicago. This 60-minute course explores the relationship between equity, science, and big data, why equity science is vital in health communication to advance health equity, and how you can apply inclusive and equitable research in your work.

Highlights from HCLI 2023

“We have an obligation…to do better, be better, and know better.” -Ashani Johnson-Turbes, Ph.D.

This belief sums up the very foundation of effective health communication. It also sums up the theme of many of this year’s HCLI panels (and something we’re passionate about at the CHC): to continually strive to make our campaigns more accessible for all. By keeping diversity, equity, and inclusion in mind, we can become better advocates in our own health communication campaigns—and better leaders overall.
