Hello, my name is Yadong Ji. I got my Ph.D. from Ohio University in Communication Studies. I primarily research on health communication, including health persuasion, messaging, and health campaign, and intercultural communication, including acculturation, bi-cultural identity, and favoritism. I present my research at conventions of International Communication Association, National Communication Association, and Eastern Communication Association. My publications appear on journals such as Health Communication, Journal of Intercultural Communication Research.
