Towards Health Mass-Self Communication

October 28, 2009

On 26th October I have the opportunity to act as a moderator in a symposium called Communication in health 2.0, organized by the Institute for Continuing Education (IDEC) and the University of Pompeu Fabra’s Science Communication Observatory (OCC). First of all, I would like to thank Vladimir de Semir, Gemma Revuelta and Clara Armengou for their invitation and their organization of the symposuum. I really think that University has a role as a hub to disseminate and research about this topic in collaboration with the rest of the actors (industry, healthcare providers, professionals, Government,…).

Act as a moderator gave me the opportunity to work on the Health Communication field as a framework of part of the research I have been doing and develop the first step towards the conceptualization of Health Mass-Self Communication.
