Interesting new classes offered for spring

Editor’s note: HPU faculty offers new courses every term, but spring 2007 seems especially rich. Martha E. Randolph, a student worker in the University’s Center for Graduate and Adult Services, offers this list of some of them. Elsewhere in this issue, and in future issues, she and Kalamalama staff will provide in-depth coverage of some of these classes and their instructors. [More]

New course in health com

by Kalamalama staff

“There is a place on the cutting edge of health care and medicine for effective communication and marketing professionals—if they understand the landscape, culture, and language,” said Dr. Penny Pence Smith, assistant professor of communication and program chair for advertising and public relations in the College of Communication.

Smith’s new course, Integrated Health Communication, offered by the College of Communication in spring 2006, will introduce students to this vital field and help them scope out the pathways to a dynamic and successful future.

The course will be offered jointly to graduate (COM 6910) and undergraduate (COM 3910) levels on Wednesday evenings, said Smith.

According to Assistant Dean of Communication Dr. John Hart, “Smith is a nationally recognized marketing and management consultant in the health care field.” He added that she is also president of Medical Marketing Management, a 12-year-old consulting firm.

Integrated Health Communication will explore the complex and dynamic world of communication in health care, including:

· The difficult and sensitive requirements of care giver to patient;

· The educational mandates of provider relations;

· Social marketing and messaging for health care initiatives to at-risk publics; and

· Marketing communications for provider organizations.

“ All Integrated Health Communication class members,” said Smith, “will explore the complex relationships among the health care industry segments. In addition, graduate students in the class will study management and theoretical aspects of the field. Each student will have the opportunity to develop a communication program or campaign for an organization of individual interest.”

Integrated Health Communication is available online or through the Registrar’s Office at (808) 544-0239. For more information, call Smith at (808) 566-2423. or e-mail psmith@hpu.edu.

Former legislator teaches labor relations

TheBus drivers go on strike. How do you get to school? To work? To the grocery store? You’re really inconvenienced, but if the drivers aren’t getting paid a living wage, you feel the need to support them. [More]
