Book award for Ashley Duggan

duggan_health and illnessThe National Communication Association Interpersonal Communication Division has chosen Professor of Communication Ashley Duggan to receive a Gerald R. Miller Outstanding Book Award for her book Health and Illness in Close Relationships (Cambridge University Press, 2019). Synthesizing empirical evidence and associated theoretical constructs from the literature on health/illness in close relationships, Duggan compares foundational assumptions of research on relational processes and research on health and illness. Using this approach, she provides a cohesive, cross-disciplinary understanding of relevant theoretical and empirical issues and why health/illness provides a unique context for understanding close relationships.
