Received this, thought I would share---

The April issue of Health Communication Science Digest (HCSD or Digest) is now available at

This month we congratulate our CDC colleagues Madeline Y. Sutton, Sarah M. Lasswell, Yzette Lanier, and Kim S. Miller (all DHPSE/ NCHHSTP)! In their work, which appears in the Journal of Adolescent Health, Sutton et al. provide a systematic review of parent-child communication interventions about sex targeting African-American and Hispanic/Latino audience segments. They conclude that these communication interventions can effectively reduce sexual risk for youth and improve sexual health outcomes.

Also in the Digest this month: Several other papers report on public health interventions, the role that trust in public health organizations plays in health message reception is examined in two papers (Friemuth et al.; Lachlan et al.). Health message design considerations are discussed by others. Aspects of both crisis and risk communication and audience targeting and tailoring are reported. A special report highlighting traditional and social media use among students in 6th through 12th grades is included.
