About the Author:

Nancy Grant Harrington is a professor in the Department of Communication and Associate Dean for Research in the College of Communication and Information at the University of Kentucky.

Review:

This edited book on health communication is quite innovative in that it is cast at three levels – text, reference, and guide book. It works on all three levels as it provides expert information and ideas that are multi-paradigmatic and broad in scope to facilitate readers as they take an active role in improving health outcomes. Sandi Smith, Director, Health and Risk Communication Center, Michigan State University

Written in an engaging and entertaining style, Nancy Harrington’s Health Communication covers numerous topics frequently unrepresented in health communication work. The metatheoretical emphasis is a strong contribution, and is consistently seen across the various chapters. It is unusual to see a focus on conflicting results in research, but the text again pleases the reader with such an inclusion. The sidebars, pictures, and examples are helpful, informative, and interesting, as are the discussion questions and exercises at the end of each chapter. After reading Harrington’s text, I feel much more prepared for a potential zombie-apocalypse; I think that the reader will also feel much more prepared to participate as a health consumer, provider, or practitioner/researcher. This is a good read and a helpful resource. Teresa Thompson, Professor of Communication, University of Dayton
