Courtney Klemm Westlake '06 JOURN, has published her first book, "A Different Beautiful."
When Westlake’s family was given the shocking news that their daughter, Brenna, was born in 2011 with a severe, life-threatening skin disorder, they began to discover a new and different kind of beautiful in their lives – one that values extraordinary differences and appreciates the wonderful sameness found in our humanity.
Department of Advertising assistant professor John G. Wirtz delivered the keynote address at the 17th Annual Martha Nelson Lewis Symposium, hosted by the School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences and Wexner Medical Center at The Ohio State University. The topic of the talk was using social media to promote health behavior change.
