SCG Sharpens Communication Skills in Atlanta

By Becky Abel


How do SCG staff members make sure our communication skills stay on point? We’re constantly learning! SCG recently attended CDC’s National Conference on Health Communication, Marketing, and Media in Atlanta, Georgia. The conference brings together health communicators from public and private sectors to learn from leaders in the field. Topics included translating research into accessible messages, using audience research to craft health communications that stay relevant, examining new communication channels, and reinvigorating traditional channels. (Did you know that Facebook and Twitter are now considered “traditional” channels?!) SCG’s Communications Team will apply the information learned from communication experts in our work, and will continue to bring new ideas to our clients. We pride ourselves on continuous growth and professional development, and always strive to learn more about how to efficiently and effectively communicate health messages for our clients.
