The CHRC team consists of experts in various fields including health and risk communication, mass media, public relations, persuasion and social influence, interpersonal communication, and intercultural communication. Our team studies communication processes and effects related to health and risk issues such as food safety and nutrition, health risks, environmental hazards, and disasters. We are committed to conducting rigorous research that is responsive to the needs of government, industry, and the public; and providing evidence-based recommendations to address pressing issues and challenges in health and risk communication.

Our research has been funded by various sources including the Food and Drug Administration through the Joint Institute for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (JIFSAN), the National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes of Health, and the Department of Homeland Security through the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism (START).
