The June issue of Health Communication Science Digest (HCSD or Digest) is now available at http://www.cdc.gov/healthcommunication/ScienceDigest/index.html
This month in the Digest several papers explore the uses, benefits, and limitations of new media in public health communication. Other studies examine how media news and entertainment content may shape public perceptions of health risks and healthy lifestyle behaviors. Health message design and presentation is the focus of many studies. Aspects of health literacy and risk communication are discussed in others.
Please remember that you can access all issues of the “Health Communication Science Digest” series online via the searchable Health Communication Science Digest Archive.
