  1. Communication is everything and everywhere with the power to persuade. It is essential that health communication serve as the foundation for addressing health inequities and disparities.

  2. Effective health communication is critical to communicating with communities about health, building partners in community health, conducting research, in health education curricula design and delivery to reduce disparities.

  3. When working with marginalized groups, healing engagement fosters respect of voice, testimony, sociopolitical consciousness, and provides a holistic view of communities in outreach and in program design and delivery

  4. Healing engagement, as a asset driven approach, is important to engaging partners, collaborators, organizations with optimism and the hope that linkages among partners will offer a health engaged safety net to keep communities from harm.
