At the nexus of research and change lies communication.

CHRT’s communications team believes that communications are an essential ingredient for any researcher, government entity, and not-for-profit hoping to inform public opinion, public policy, or human behavior. 

Our goal? Empowering readers to make choices that improve their health, and the health of our communities.

Every communiction project begins by gathering information. The team collects your thoughts, goals, and vision, then reviews your materials and findings, and looks at outside sources, as well.

Next, CHRT works with clients to identify their audience, purpose, and constraints, and to frame them within today’s social, cultural, economic, and political context. 

Tailored communication and dissemination plans are informed by theoretic models–the theory of planned behavior, the socio-ecological model, and the health belief model–as well as best practices in human-centered design, plain language, and culturally-competent communications.
