The Health Communication Research Center (HCRC) is proud to congratulate founder and co-director, Glen T. Cameron, on his recent honor from the Mizzou Alumni Association (MAA). One of four honorees at the October 18th event, Cameron was recognized for his outstanding achievements as a faculty member and researcher at the Missouri School of Journalism.
“It’s a pleasure to be honored in such great company and receive an award for doing work you love and find fulfilling,” said Cameron. “I’m very grateful for the recognition and support and inspiration I’ve received from students, colleagues, friends and family over the years. I appreciate this affirmation of my work mentoring students and advancing our understanding of health communication.”
Along with founding the HCRC and playing a critical role on our projects, Cameron also serves as professor and Maxine Wilson Gregory Chair in Journalism Research at the J-School and regularly mentors students on theoretical and applied methods in strategic and health communication.
“He fostered my enthusiasm and intellectual curiosity by demonstrating how dynamic and exciting the field of strategic communication is,” said Seoyeon Hong, a strategic communication doctoral candidate. “He always takes the extra time and energy to help me, and has been not just a teacher but like a parent to me.”
Along with teaching, Cameron’s work can also be found on the shelves of many journalism and communications majors. As co-author of the best-selling textbook, Public Relations: Strategies and Tactics (Pearson), Cameron’s insights have been translated into nine languages and numerous workbooks and ancillary items.
Internationally recognized for his work in public relations and health communication, he has authored more than 300 books, chapters, articles and convention papers and is considered the most published researcher in peer-reviewed journalism and mass communication journals over the last five years. Aside from serving professor and researcher, Cameron’s achievements also span into the areas of software design, having pioneered PR and health communication tools such as Publics PR Research Software and Treepple.
Cameron also holds a joint appointment in Family and Community Medicine at the Missouri School of Medicine.
