Welcome to Influencing Health

My name is Dr. Amelia Burke-Garcia, and I have been working at the intersection of digital and social media and health for nearly 20 years. My work has tested some of the most innovative digital communication methods in support of health communication and behavior change initiatives globally. I was recently named to VeryWellHealth.com’s list of 10 Modern Female Innovators Shaking Up Health Care. I am your leading resource for understanding online influencers and their role in health – and so much more!

My forthcoming book, entitled Influencing Health: A Comprehensive Guide to Working with Online Influencers, will be published by Routledge on July 18, 2019. You can pre-order the book now though. Interested in learning more about it? Contact me!
