Laura O'Hara and her students documented the recovery narratives of local people “making their way back” to wellness. The class divided itself into three teams for three films, one of which focused on recovery from cancer, another which explored the loss of home and property, and a third which documented the progress of the second team. The three documentaries have been released for broadcast on public television. Laura's community sponsors are American Cancer Society, Cancer Center: Ball Memorial Hospital, Community Cancer Education/Prevention Program: Ball Memorial Hospital, Hoosier Heartland Chapter of the American Red Cross, Little Red Door Cancer Services of Delaware County, Open Door/Ball Memorial Hospital Community Services, and WIPB-TV.

Laura O'Hara is an Associate Professor in the Communication Studies Dept. where she teaches both graduate & undergrad courses in organizational communication, intercultural communication & interpersonal communication.
