Research Updates

Our lab has been hard at work over the past year, and I am excited to share updates on recent publications and presentations.


I’m pleased to share the following publication, co-authored with colleagues Dr. Antonio Gardner and Dr. Leah Pylate. It chronicles findings from research we did to inform MSU’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic:

Seitz, H. H., Gardner, A., & Pylate, L. (2023). Formative research to inform college health communication campaigns about COVID-19 prevention behaviors. Health Promotion and Practice.


This year has included several presentations at national conferences (with more to come), and I am tremendously grateful for the colleagues and talented student co-authors who have contributed to this work:

Seitz, H. & Rendon, S. (2023, May 25-29). n. 73rd Annual International Communication Association Conference, Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Seitz, H. H., Downey, L., Byrd, S. & Cole, A. (2023, March 1). Effects of a social marketing campaign (SMC) on campaign awareness, fruit and vegetable consumption, and physical activity during the COVID-19 pandemic [Virtual oral presentation]. 2023 Association of SNAP Nutrition Education Administrators (ASNNA) Conference.

Seitz, H. H. & Rendon, S. (2023, February 9-11). Transforming health communication pedagogy through community engagement and experiential learning [Poster presentation]. American Association of Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) Conference on General Education, Pedagogy, and Assessment, New Orleans, LA, United States.

I will be presenting research at the National Communication Association Annual Convention in November and look forward to reconnecting with colleagues and sharing more of the lab’s work there.
