Description

You are invited to the Michigan State University Health & Risk Communication Day of Innovation. On Friday, Sept. 27, we will have a panel, a networking luncheon, and the annual Bettinghaus Endowed Lecture with speaker Dr. Kami Silk.

Learn about the newest innovations and insights on health and risk communication. A perfect opportunity for professional development.

10:00AM: Innovations and Insights Panel. A panel of professional and academic specialists will discuss the latest trends in health and risk communication. Guests include:

    • Anna Melville, Director of Population Health at Sparrow Health System, and HRCMA alumna
    • Alexander Plum, Director of Innovation at Henry Ford Health System, and MSU alumnus
    • Monique Turner, ComArtSci Professor and Communication Dept. Chair

12:00PM: A free lunch will follow the panel.

2:30PM: Join us for the annual Bettinghaus Endowed Lecture, with Dr. Silk's talk: "Translational Communication Science for Transdisciplinary Research: The Breast Cancer and Environment Research Program". Dr. Silk works on health message design, with an emphasis on translating complex health information to the lay public. Her current research focuses on designing health messages for women about links between environmental determinants and breast cancer risks. Dr. Silk is also interested in the role of health literacy and numeracy in audience understanding of risk messages, particularly among low-income segments of the population.

AND this day of events coincides with MSU Homecoming! Go see the Homecoming Parade after the Bettinghaus Lecture, and enjoy some football the next day.
