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.

Can I Eat This? mobile app wins Award of Excellence from National Association of Government Communicators
The “Can I Eat This?” mobile app, created for the CDC Travelers’ Health Branch, received an Award of Excellence from the National Association of Government Communicators.
The CDC Radiation Studies Branch teamed with ORISE and the National Association of County and City Health Officials to develop a guide that identifies radiation-specific considerations for shelter operations.
ORAU/ORISE is assisting the CDC with conversion of existing instructor-led training into an e-learning series that will help the School Health Branch widen its reach and increase exposure to CDC-developed tools designed to promote student health and academic success.
