VICNetwork ‘Correspondent’ Kerry Shearer videotaped and edited this clip from last week’s Conference on Health Communication, Media and Marketing in Atlanta. The National Public Health Information Coalition (NPHIC) was a cosponsor of the event and if you were not able to attend, take Kerry’s advice and get together with a colleague who was there and pick their brains about the latest information in public health communications.

Many of the conference presentations will be archived on the CDC website. The VICNetwork will let you know when they are available. Click to see Kerry’s report from the conference.
