Communicating Through COVID-19 and Beyond: Impact and Insights from the Field of Public Health

Communicating Through COVID-19 and Beyond features insights and learnings from public health communicators across the country.

Leading up to the two-year anniversary of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Public Health Communications Collaborative conducted a national survey and received more than 600 responses from 51 states and territories. We heard from commissioners, public information officers, community health workers, contact tracers, educators, program directors, nurses, and more.

Our team reviewed every submission, and we are deeply grateful to everyone who took the time to share stories of survival and empathy, mistakes and lessons, frustration and hope, and compassion for your communities. These reflections highlight the immense impact of public health communicators since 2020 and offer a powerful wealth of insights for protecting public health through COVID-19 and beyond.
