GLOBAL LISTENING BOARD
Juliann C. Scholl Ph.D.is a health communication fellow with the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) USA, which is an agency of the CDC. She works in the Education and Information Division where I do translation research and co-direct the NIOSH National Center for Productive Aging and Work (NCPAW). Dr Juliann translation research explores how occupational safety and health research findings can best be turned into guidance and delivered through a variety of channels to our stakeholders–mostly employers, unions, industry leaders, and trade associations–for application to the work environment. Dr Juliann work in NCPAW involves building relationships with internal and external partners, safety and health education, facilitating translation research in the area of safety and health for aging workers. I’ve given presentations, informal talks, and press interviews in the area of productive and healthy aging.
Before NIOSH, Dr Juliann was a tenured professor in the Department of Communication Studies at Texas Tech University (2002-2013), and she was a visiting assistant professor in communication at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln before that (2000-2002). Her areas of research focused on organizational and health communication, with specific emphases on crisis communication, medical humor, patient-provider interaction, and health communication issues among marginalized patients. Dr Juliann taught courses in organizations, small groups, communication in health care, leadership, and training instruction. As for recent work outside of NIOSH, Dr Juliann is working with Peter Lang Publishers to finish production on a co-authored book (with Bolanle Olaniran) on a handbook for crisis communication centers. Dr Juliann continue to write and publish in the areas of health communication and crisis management.
