Communication Focus

Tammy Bosley is a full-time tenure track Communication Instructor and Program Coordinator in the Arts and Humanities Division at Lorain County Community College. Tammy is especially interested in healthcare provider/patient communication.


At present Tammy is working on a PhD at Kent State University, majoring in Interpersonal and Health Communication. A Communication major at Ball State University, Tammy earned a Master of Arts degree there in 1993. She did her undergraduate work at Grace College, and in 1990 was awarded a Bachelor’s of Science in Psychology and Communication.

Affiliations and Awards

Tammy is the Vice-President of the Ohio Communication Association, and is a member of the National Communication Association and of the Golden Key International Honor Society.  She was a 2015 Nominee for the Faculty Teaching Excellence Award (through the LCCC Foundation), a Foundation Grant Co-recipient for Please Improve My Paper and recipient of the Outstanding Adjunct Faculty Award at LCCC.


Publication credits for 2017 include articles in the peer-reviewed journal Behavioral Sciences and in the publications Foundations of Communications, and the Proceedings of the International Pedagogical Conference (2016).

Classes Taught

It is hard to imagine a communication course Tammy has not taught. Those classes include: Oral Communication, Small Group Communication, Interpersonal Communication, Communication Theory and Intercultural Communication.

Volunteering and More

Within the community, Tammy served as Director of the Lorain County Volunteer Guardianship Program from 1994-2000. This is a non-profit agency which assisted indigent citizens in need of court appointed legal guardians.

When she isn’t involved with public speaking, research, supervision, grant writing and teaching, you likely find her running the trails in the metro parks.

About Tammy Bosley's presentation on November 1,  2017

Using Theory to Improve Health Communication Satisfaction

Who hasn’t been influenced by health communication? Maybe you stopped smoking because you had the support of a close friend or family member.  Possibly an advertisement for a community exercise group helped you become more active.  Join Tammy Bosley, LCCC full-time faculty and Arts and Humanities Program Coordinator for Communication, as she introduces the audience to the field of Health Communication.  Through qualitative and quantitate research methods, this discipline seeks to improve communication across health-related settings. Tammy will explain how applying a theoretical framework facilitates better communication as we each pursue health and well-being.

LCCC Arts & Humanities faculty, Tammy Bosley, will host the forum, Using Theory to Improve Health Communication Satisfaction, in LC 209 on Wednesday, November 1, 2017, during the noon hour, 12-1. Enjoy light refreshments during this next installment of the Bass Library’s Focus on Faculty series. Again the Library will be highlighting the special talents and contributions of our outstanding LCCC faculty.
