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 currently work for NORC at the University of Chicago as Director of its Digital Strategy and Outreach Program Area. I have been named to VeryWellHealth.com’s list of 10 Modern Female Innovators Shaking Up Health Care and featured by the U.S. Surgeon General, Dr. Vivek Murthy, for my work. 

My new book, Communicating Through a Pandemic: A Chronicle of Experiences, Lessons Learned, and a Vision for the Future, is out now! Make sure to order your copy of the book today!

I am your leading resource for understanding online influencers and their role in health – and so much more!
