One of the sessions at the upcoming conference will focus on mobile technology and health care. In this conversation, Ellen Beth Levitt, senior communications specialist at Johns Hopkins Medicine speaks with the co-founders of Healthy TXT, Chief Medical Advisor Dr. Vishal Mehta and Managing Partner Sharon Schreiber, about their successful mobile health campaign "Be Unstoppable!

Held annually, the Health Academy Conference provides public relations and communications professionals with insights on the latest trends, technologies and regulations impacting health care communications. The program focuses on providing practical, actionable advice that can be used to overcome modern health care communications challenges, such as legal and regulatory compliance, measurement and evaluation, and the use of social media.
The Health Academy Conference is also one of the premier networking opportunities for the nation’s health care communicators. Hundreds of public relations and communications professionals from all over the world — including professionals working in public relations agencies, corporations, the government and military, health care institutions, associations, nonprofit organizations and academia — attend the conference each year to meet like-minded colleagues, share knowledge, uncover new opportunities and make valuable personal connections.
