In the Digest this month several papers report results from health communication interventions (Belknap et al., Dunlop et al., Leavy et al., Nguyen et al., Peels et al.). Aspects of health literacy are discussed by several authors (Gettman et al., Gibbs & Chapman-Novakofski, Zazove et al.). Message design and presentation considerations are highlighted in several studies (Boiarsky et al., Briley et al., Jenkins & Dragojevic, Sarge & Knobloch-Westervick, Song et al., Spence et al.). Health information seeking preferences, including channel specific observations, are the focus of some (Baldwin et al., Ho et al., Markey & Markey, Oh et al., Rose & Friedman).
