Can you use a TV soap or a game to promote health? What is the role and impact of health stories from celebrities, (blogging) patients and health organisations? How should health and media professionals work together? And what challenges do health communication scholars face? These and other questions will be answered at the HealthNar closing symposium.
 
On March 23-24, 2017, the closing symposium of the European IRSES Health Narratives Network will be organized at the University of Antwerp.  The title of the symposium is: “Mediated narratives, interactive technology, and health behaviors”. On the first day, the potential of Entertainment-Education for health promotion will be explored. On the second day, new technologies and new storytellers will be put in the spotlights.
 
The symposium will include keynote lectures, poster presentations, interactive sessions and a roundtable discussion. Several renowned scholars and field experts will contribute.
 
The symposium invites health promotion practitioners, media professionals, health communication scholars, and health and media policymakers to participate.
