About Dr. Kenzie

I am an assistant professor in the Department of Pharmacy Practice, where I teach writing and critical thinking for healthcare majors. As a rhetorician and writing specialist by training, I’m pleased to teach occasionally for English, with a plan to offer ENGL 754: Rhetorics of Science and Technology in odd-numbered falls. I also have limited availability to serve on graduate students’ committees. Prior to joining Pharmacy Practice in January 2019, I was a visiting assistant professor in English, where I taught upper division writing courses.

My research interests include rhetorics of health and medicine, technical communication, and disability studies, and my current research investigates vaccine discourse on social media. I am also a faculty collaborator with NDSU’s Center for Immunization Research and Education (CIRE).
