ECHC 2019

Welcome to the website of the European Conference on Health Communication (ECHC), taking place from 13 to 15 November 2019 in Zurich (Switzerland).

The conference has a thematic focus on social aspects of health communication. It will provide a platform for discussing the interrelations between health, health communication, and people’s social contexts on various levels and from diverse perspectives. With the aim to represent the full scope of current health communication research, the ECHC also welcomes research on further issues of health communication.

The ECHC 2019 is a joint conference of the Health Communication Temporary Working Group of the European Communication Research and Education Association (ECREA) and the Health Communication Division of the German Communication Association (DGPuK). It is hosted by the Department of Communication and Media Research at the University of Zurich (IKMZ).

On this website you find further information about the conference venues and the programme of the conference. To stay up to date, you may also subscribe to the newsletter of the ECREA Health Communication Temporary Working Group here.
