Welcome to the the Annenberg Library Health Communication resource page.  Here you will find resources to help you navigate the vibrant interdisciplinary field affectionatley also known as Healthcomm. Health communication addresses the role of mediated communication to publics about the delivery of health care, the prevention of health risks, and the promotion of healthy behaviors. It also includes interpersonal communication between helath care providers and patients.

The page is divided into resource types: article/chapter indexes (i.e. databases), dataset resources, key journals, websites and associations, books (both reference and a selection of key texts), and related dvds.  I hope you find it useful and bibliographically salubrious!
