Online Health Support Network

This talk will explore how expression in online health support networks can benefit patients dealing with cancer, chronic health conditions, and addiction. Shah considers (a) the therapeutic benefits of self-expression and the psychological basis of “sender-effects”—where message senders benefit from the process of composing and sharing messages, and (b) the potential to use self-expression to detect traits and characteristics regarding a person’s health and well-being.
