The Health and Risk Communcation Center supports the work of over 50 affiliate faculty members who study the role of communication in health behavior change and risk reduction.

The HRCC serves as a hub for interdisciplinary research connections, provides methodological resources (such as surveys, focus groups, message production and statistical analysis), and serves as a go-to for specialized knowledge and expertise on all aspects of the health and environment risk process. The HRCC has worked with professionals outside the college, advising medical organizations, local and state government, and NGOs on a variety of health and risk related issues.
