Taught by Whitney Darnell

This course overviews major theories used in health communication research and intervention planning, as well as contemporary issues including patient-provider communication, cultural beliefs and health, influence of mass media on health beliefs and behaviors, and the impact of interpersonal relationships on health. Throughout the semester, students work in small groups to develop an intervention designed to address a health issue in the community.

"Having this creative component in my classroom, allows me the ability to marry the theory that I teach, with real-world practical application."
