PhD Student recognized by STAR

PhD student Kasey Foley was awarded the Superior Teaching and Research (STAR) Award from the College of Liberal Arts. Kasey’s research examines interpersonal communication in health contexts, with a focus on strategic messaging to educate, motivate, and support public engagement in health issues. Funding provided by the award will be used in the development and testing of training modules that support primary care providers in their efforts to promote antibiotic stewardship. These will include theory-based modules on: (a) explaining a viral diagnosis, (b) conveying the risks of antibiotics, (c) advising on symptom relief, (d) providing emotional support, and (e) communicating about health with emerging adult patient populations. Congratulations, Kasey!
