2017 ICCH/HARC Conference

The National Aquarium (angular original building with glass pyramid top of 1981, rear right, and 2005 north extension to its left) lies near two of four historic museum / exhibit ships of the Baltimore Maritime Museum on Piers 3 and 4 in the Inner Harbor area of Baltimore, including World War II submarine USS Torsk and Lightship Chesapeake.


We are proud to host the combined meeting of the International Conference on Communication in Healthcare – ICCH and the Health Literacy Annual Research Conference — HARC. We have assembled an outstanding line-up of keynote speakers for our conference, bringing unique perspectives on our common commitment to quality communication and health equity in the delivery of effective and responsive care.

We have also planned a fantastic schedule of oral and poster presentations, workshops and symposia, as well as “Meet the Professor/Leader,” “Pairing with Colleagues,” and Special Interest Group sessions.
