On Wednesday, May 18, two School of Communication students, Megan Lenzzo and Jeff Stango, and William Seymour, an adjunct faculty member in the School of Communication, will be guests on the Fox CT Morning Show during the 8 a.m. hour. The two students are part of a group of 12 students who volunteered to challenge the sometimes frightening notion of a children's trauma program and replace it with the reality of a warm and caring commitment to children. They created a special public relations plan using stories and videos threading together how health-care professionals work to create trauma prevention programs as well as make the process of treatment easier for parents to understand. Also taking part in the segment will be Dr. Brendan Campbell, pediatric surgeon and director of pediatric trauma at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center.
