This chapter proposes a framework for epidemiologists to communicate information to nonscientists. It addresses several leading strategies used to communicate epidemiologic information to improve the health of the public. Strategies to communicate health information range from the often chaotic media coverage of published research to well-organized, national public education campaigns. The challenge for the practicing epidemiologist is to use these strategies to communicate important health information effectively, to improve the public's health.
