"This new edition superbly blends the practical with the theoretical in a well-structured, updated text on health communication. The author has further elaborated on a particularly critical aspect of strategic communication planning: participatory research, emphasizing a key mantra of health communication: Listen to the people." —Everold Hosein, PhD, senior communication advisor/consultant to WHO and UNICEF; adjunct professor/ coordinator, WHO and New York University Summer Institute on IMC/Communication for Behavioral Impact (COMBI); adjunct professor/codirector, Global Health Communication Center, Indiana University

"This timely, topical, and relevant update captures the breadth and depth of experiences, interventions, and theories. It serves to provision the novice communicator as well as seasoned academics and executives." —Mario R. Nacinovich, Jr., MSC, managing partner, AXON; adjunct faculty member, Boston University; former editor-in-chief, Journal of Communication in Healthcare

"This useful book on the theory and practice of health communication has proved itself in the public health literature. Health communication is integral to public health practice and advocacy and Dr. Schiavo's book is both clearly written and comprehensive." —Sally Guttmacher, PhD, professor, Public Health, New York University

"Reflecting the rapid changes in health care, including patient-centered care delivery, and with case studies from the United States and international sites, this edition will be an essential resource for health communicators at all levels of scholarship and practice." —Marian Huhman, PhD, Department of Communication, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign

"Dr. Schiavo has authored a book that captures new trends and emerging challenges in health communication and development. An essential reading for anyone involved in domestic or global public health initiatives." —Rafael Obregon, PhD, chief, Communication for Development Section, UNICEF, New York
