D.C. Health Communication Conferences

Every other year, the Center for Health & Risk Communication (CHR&C) at George Mason University organizes and hosts the D.C. Health Communication Conference.

Support for the DCHC conferences is provided by a conference grant from the National Cancer Institute and the NIH Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research. DCHC is the sister conference of the Kentucky Conference on Health Communication (KCHC).

Open Science Initiative conferences

The Open Scholarship Initiative (OSI) brings together a diverse and high-level group of scholarly publishing decision makers from around the globe into a series of annual meetings that are thoughtfully designed and constructed so these leaders can personally share their ideas and perspectives and look for common ground and actionable solutions.

OSI is managed by the National Science Communication Institute (nSCI) in long-term partnership with UNESCO (the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization). GMU Communications and Press Forward hosted the first of 10 annual conferences.

Health care conferences

The best source for health care is Symplur's compilation of conferences.  This list is part of the Symplur Hashtag Project.


Healthcare Hashtag Project, a free open platform for patients, caregivers, advocates, doctors and other providers that connects them to relevant conversations and communities.

The goal of the Healthcare Hashtag Project is to make the use of Twitter more accessible for providers and the healthcare community as a whole.
