This proposal aims to present in a didactic manner the dynamics and the results obtained from the “Megaphone Project: health in loudly sound”, conducted in partnership between the undergraduate course in Journalism and a Masters in “Health Promotion “, of the University Center of Maringa (UniCesumar). The project produced and distributed sound materials - in differents formats and genres - related to the universe of health, in the Cesumar University Radio (RUC FM, 94.3), an educational broadcaster. The objective was to provide services to the community. The Megaphone: health in loudly sound Project was developed throughout 2012. Journalism students produced two radio programms: the 20 minutes/weekly “Pulsação” (Heartbeat), and the “Momente Pulsação” (Heartbeat Moment), wich broadcasted 2-3 minutes information capsules (programetes) about Health Promotion in yhe daily schedule of the RUC FM. The program “Pulsação” broadcasted interviews and news specifically about the universe of health: from prevention to the latest scientific discoveries in the area, especially the studies conducted by the students of the Master in “Health Promotion” of UniCesumar. The programm also focused on awakening journalism students to professional practice committed to society through a reflection on Scientific Journalism. The students of the Master in Health Promotion participation was carried out during the course Media, Culture and Society. Students reflect on important matters to be disclosed to society, suggesting guidelines and granting interviews to undergraduate students in journalism for programms production. The results of this initiative were huge, not only for students, but especially to the population of Maringá. People had the opportunity to hear important discussions that can make a difference in their day by day lives. In 2013, the team of UniCesumar is broadcasting another project with the same name. The journalism students are producing an enterview programm with professor and masters students about the researches that are being developed in Master in Health Promotion. This experience can be also shown in the presentation at 13th International Public Communication of Science and Technology Conference
