Dr. Dariela Rodriguez recently received a certification in Risk Communication from the Harvard University School of Public Health. Dr. Rodriguez attended the 4-day training taught by instructors from Harvard University, George Washington University, Kings College in London, and Newgate Communication, LLC. Participants in the training included members of the Pentagon Joint Chiefs of Staff Risk Department, Shell Oil, Exxon Mobile, the Environmental Protection Agency, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the International Monetary Fund. Dr. Rodriguez reported that she has made some invaluable connections that will assist our students greatly in the future. This certification will also be of great value as the Department of Communication Studies gets ready to launch its new major in Health and Risk Communication.
