This paper reports on an experience developed in the municipality of Guarulhos, under the sponsorship of the Ministry of Health, in which the aim was to involve radio broadcasters in the health education process. Workshops on health subjects were organized with the participation of municipal healthcare service employees and community radio broadcasters with the same area of coverage, for reflection, discussion and elaboration of joint actions. The methodology developed brought together not only academic texts but also other types of language such as painting, music, radio serials, poetry, etc, to deal with these subjects. The final evaluation consisted of a questionnaire filled out by the participants. Analysis on the responses indicated that this methodology was compatible with the aims of achieving involvement and developing partnerships between communicators, healthcare services and the community.
