About the Author

M. Dutta, Associate Professor of Communication, Department of Communication, Purdue University


"If you are looking for a fresh approach to teaching health communication, Communicating Health provides a unique perspective that will leave readers with a feeling of sensitivity, a call to justice, and a knowledge bank of practical strategies from culture-centered healthcare." Communication Research Trends ?I quickly became engrossed in this thoughtful book. I recommend it to all who are prepared to be challenged.? Five star review from Nursing Standard "Communicating Health is a most timely and critically important contribution to our global understanding of the location of culture in health communication. Drawing on multidisciplinary fields of scholarly traditions, Mohan Dutta offers sensitive yet compelling insights and critical thoughts that locate culture at the core of health communication. This is a book that should be read by everyone concerned about the role of health communication in achieving social justice, equity, and optimum health globally." Collins O. Airhihenbuwa, Pennsylvania State University "The book abounds with provocative and revealing examples that support conclusions and recommendations. It is equally valuable for health communication scholars and health promotion practitioners." Gary L. Kreps, George Mason University
