Health Department Communications

Communications provides opportunities for local health departments (LHDs) to raise awareness of local public health efforts, influence policymakers, engage the media, educate the public, deliver calls to action, and inspire behavioral change. An integrated approach to communications includes media outreach, branding, social media, marketing, advertising, and community engagement. Whether an LHD is planning a communications program, crafting a media strategy, or framing a message to reach target audiences, the road to excellence in health department communications starts here
