A new academic concentration in health communication that debuts this fall was the focus of a recent “MTSU On the Record” radio program.
Host Gina Logue’s interview with associate professor Betsy Dalton and assistant professor Natalie Hoskins of the Department of Communication Studies first aired Aug. 4 on WMOT-FM Roots Radio 89.5 and www.wmot.org.

Some of the courses available for students in the new concentration will focus on professional relationships, patient providers, social communication, technology and health care organizations.
Dalton and Hoskins said the curricula will prepare students for a variety of postgraduation fields.
“A student who majors in our discipline has the ability to be flexible in all sorts of career choices, not just communication-oriented fields,” Hoskins said.
“If they do want to go into a health field, this concentration will prepare them in a way that has them speaking the language of health care so that they will have that option,” said Dalton.
