Health Communication and Training

The Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE) collaborates with federal, state and local agencies to provide health communication and technical training programs to benefit industry professionals and the public.

ORISE works closely with these agencies to prepare for and address public health challenges resulting from pandemics (such as H1N1 influenza virus), large-scale disasters, terrorism and other national and international emergencies. We specifically focus our efforts on health communication planning, international and community workshops, media monitoring and social media messaging.

ORISE also specializes in audience- and multimedia-based approaches to health communication. These methods broaden the scope and reach of messages that address public health challenges, such as the spread of infectious diseases, chronic diseases, and other health threats.
