Celebrating women's history month at UD
Dawn Fallik, who teaches journalism at UD, specializing in medical writing, will speak at the South by Southwest (SXSW) conference on Friday, March 8, in Austin, Texas. The topic of her panel discussion, “Generation Lonely: 10,000 Followers and No Friends,” has proved so popular that a second, encore session has been added to the schedule. “The panel will focus on why so many people feel lonely, the medical and mental consequences of being isolated and what we can do about it—and that's a different path for everyone,” says Fallik, who is writing a book about the causes, consequences and ways to address loneliness across generations.
At UD, Fallik is a co-organizer of the “Words for Nerds” seminar, which teaches STEM doctoral students how to communicate with the public across media platforms.
