Communication is one of life’s most vital processes. And, like life itself, how we
communicate changes as we age. To help celebrate the start of Old  Dominion University’s new forward-looking master’s degree in life span and digital communication, Professor Jon Nussbaum of Pennsylvania State University, considered the father of life span communication studies, comes to ODU to share why it is essential to understand how our communication changes over the course of our lives if we are to become better  parents, siblings, friends, teachers, caregivers and citizens in today’s complex
communication world.
