Tiana Tran, Health Communication Minor

"I've always known I wanted to help people, just like I’ve always considered writing as one of my biggest strengths. That's why I chose to major in Technical Communication. By combining the two, I naturally found myself minoring in Health Communication as well.

The biggest takeaways I took from my coursework are identifying my audience and putting myself into their perspective. There are so many ways health information can be written, interpreted, and understood. Health Communication helps me identify these aspects and present them to my audience: simply, clearly, and effectively. Through minoring in health communication, I can help people in the best way I know how–with my writing skills."
