The School of Media Arts & Studies is pleased to announce that after two conference presentations this fall, one at Global Fusion and the other at the Semiotic Society of America, Dr. Jenny Nelson and doctoral student Camilo Perez have been invited to present “A Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On: a Rhizomatic Approach to PD Narratives” at Wright State University on January 11-12.
They will screen their videos about people with Parkinson’s disease to three audiences involved in different areas of health communication: a grad class of biology students, an undergrad class of journalism students, and the entire faculty in the College of Communication.
Interdisciplinary partnerships between communication and the sciences are becoming increasingly common, reflected here at Ohio University in the work between Dr. Nelson and Brooke Vaughan, an Assistant Professor/physical therapist in the School of Rehabilitation and Communication Sciences, and with Dr. Judith Rhue’s Movement Disorder Lab in The Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine.
