How to Work With Us
Maybe you need help planning for or analyzing your health communication program on topics such as pandemic flu, radiological terrorism or a specific chronic disease. Or you might need support developing a training program using the latest technology to educate healthcare workers about a specific health topic.
Oak Ridge Associated Universities (ORAU) provides comprehensive services in health communication—everything from research and evaluation to education and training, as well as public health preparedness and the development of evidence-based health communication programs.
If this sounds like what you need, or if you have a new idea requiring a custom health communication solution, we want to talk to you.
