What is Health Communication?

I stole this from the BU website, who in turn stole it from Healthy People 2010:

“The art and technique of informing, influencing, and motivating individual, institutional, and public audiences about important health issues.”

“The scope of health communication includes disease prevention, health promotion, health care policy, and the business of health care as well as enhancement of the quality of life and health of individuals within the community.”

Sounds good.
