Associate Professor, Communication, University of Utah

Robin Jensen says, “You can’t look at women’s health without talking about feminism.”

Jensen is currently exploring the rhetorical history of women’s health, and how we define what it means to be fertile.  Jensen continues to take a serious look at the implications of reducing access to healthcare, opportunity, education and professional outlets for women.

Jensen is what you call a rhetor, the kind that wins high honors in communication study, like the Karl C. Wallace Memorial Award. Rhetor, by way of Greek and Latin, is a ‘big-brained’ way to say, she is an expert on issues related to rhetoric and health communication. She is award-winning author of the book Dirty Words, teacher and student of rhetoric.

“The question is, how do we talk about these things?” said Jensen.

Strategic Communication C/O 2017. Arrived in the SLC via the City of Brotherly Love, the Great Rift Valley, and all manner of in-between. As an instrument of independent student media, my goal is to "inform and delight," by sharing conversation about the U experience that makes being here worthwhile.
