Hampton Press has published Health Communication and Faith Communities, co-edited by UGA alumna Ann Neville Miller and Don Rubin, professor emeritus of communication studies and language and literacy education.
While a large and growing body of literature addresses the intersection of health and religion/spirituality, Health Communication and Faith Communities is the first book-length treatment addressing health messaging in, by and through religiously-identified groups.
This volume provides a broad perspective on the domain of health communication and faith-based contexts and organizations.
It draws on the expertise of researchers and practitioners from the fields of public health, pastoral care, medicine, religious and cultural studies, and health communication.
Cases emerge from a variety of religious traditions, ethnicities and nationalities.
