Darlene K. Drummond

Assistant Professor of Rhetoric, Institute for Writing and Rhetoric
Adjunct Assistant Professor, The Dartmouth Institute

I enjoy teaching classes in health communication and public speaking. My research addresses issues of identity, intercultural communication competence, social support, decision-making and medical adherence. I use a variety of ethnographic and qualitative methods to present the results of my research; and I am most proud of my autoethnographic, evocative and creative ethnographic works. Publications appear in communication and medical journals. In addition, I have presented papers at over 25 regional, national, and international conferences, and received awards from the World Communication Association, National Communication Association, and the Southern States Communication Association.
