Dr. Lisa Hanasono is an associate professor in the school of Media and Communication at Bowling Green State University. In Hanasono’s current research project, “The M-Word: Shattering the Silence of Miscarriage and Pregnancy Loss,” she explains how miscarriage is discussed (or, more often, not discussed) in our society. She will explore the silencing of pregnancy loss and how the media, medical fields and individuals can better support women and families through more effective communication about the emotional, physical, and psychological dimensions of pregnancy loss. She also plans to collect stories, poetry and artwork from community members to create an edited book about coping with pregnancy loss.
In addition to presenting and publishing research, Dr. Hanasono gives public talks and leads workshops related to shattering the silence—and coping with—pregnancy loss. If you’d her to be a speaker at your campus, organization, or community, please email her at LisaKH@bgsu.edu.
