Communication and Social Marketing to Drive Healthy Behaviors

Make the complex simple. Get your message across.

In today’s media-saturated, fast-paced world, health care organizations have an unprecedented opportunity to affect long-lasting change through communication campaigns that educate and motivate people to change their health behaviors. We help organizations in all areas of public health to design and deliver messages that will engage people and spur them to action.

Our social marketing campaigns and communication strategies are grounded in research that helps us understand our clients’ primary audiences. We develop comprehensive communication strategies that make the best use of a wide range of tools from traditional to new media. Tools may include digital and social media, video, websites, print ads, radio PSAs, and educational materials.

We collaborate with clients and their partners through every step of the process. We conduct formative research, develop cohesive branding, create appealing collateral, launch campaigns, and monitor progress to determine effectiveness.

The results are communications strategies that educate and inspire people to adopt healthy behaviors resulting in measurable, improved health outcomes.
