I am Beverly and Richard Fink Professor in Liberal Arts and an associate professor in the Hubbard School of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Minnesota. My research examines the effects of routine exposure to health information in the media, with a particular focus on conflicting and often controversial information about cancer prevention and screening. I have additional research interests in communication and health equity. My work has been funded by agencies and organizations including the National Cancer Institute, American Cancer Society, and ClearWay Minnesota. From 2014-2017, I was supported by a career development award through the University of Minnesota's NIH-funded Building Interdisciplinary Research Careers in Women's Health (BIRCWH) program. I received my PhD in Communication and my BA in the History and Sociology of Science, both from the University of Pennsylvania.
