Kelly Dorgan, PhD

After receiving my Ph.D. in Health and Intercultural Communication from The University of Georgia (2001) and spending several years teaching in Georgia, I accepted an Assistant Professor position at ETSU.  I grew up in southeast Appalachia and was eager to bring my research and teaching interests back to this area.

My research interests have been wide-ranging, largely focusing on cross-cultural health communication.  In recent collaborations, I have researched cancer communication in Appalachia and International Medical Graduate-Patient communication.  Ongoing scholarly interests also include: computer mediated communications; and the examination of stigma, sexually transmitted infections, and disclosure decisions.
