NeFCA’s Health Communication division provides a platform for Dutch and Flemish communication scholars working in the field of health communication. Research topics often cross disciplinary boundaries, e.g., (e-)health campaigns, entertainment education, games for health, (online) doctor-patient communication, media representation of illness, and online health forums.
The division organizes activities (workshops, colloquia) to promote discussion, networking and cooperation among senior and junior members. The Health Communication Division also aims to promote knowledge exchange between scholars and health specialists working in the field.
The steering committee of the Health Communication division consists of Prof.dr. Enny Das (Radboud University Nijmegen), Prof.dr. Julia van Weert (University of Amsterdam) and Prof.dr. Heidi Vandebosch (University of Antwerp). Hans Vehof (Radboud University Nijmegen) is PhD representative.
