Awarded GVU/IPaT Research Grant

Much of our communication about personal health and wellness takes place outside of a formal healthcare setting. Recent research on health information seeking and sharing practices shows that people increasingly rely on a variety of social media and online communities.

Our proposal, Patients' Information Needs Related to Diagnostic Processes around Health Concerns (with Munmun De Choudhury and Aarti Sekhar, MD) was slated for funding through a GVU/IPaT Research and Engagement Grant.
