Sharing Data and Decisions for Health

Susannah Fox will speak at a meeting of the Evidence Communication Innovation Collaborative, an initiative of the Roundtable on Value & Science-Driven Health Care, at the Institute of Medicine in Washington, DC. The meeting will focus on shared decision making and patients’ attitudes on data sharing. Fox will present the Pew Research Center’s latest findings on how people gather, share, and create health information, particularly in regards to self-tracking and chronic disease.
