What We Do

Here at the Siminoff Research Group, we know that health communication is at the heart of how patients and clinicians make decisions about health and wellness. From deciding about a particular treatment for a life-threatening disease like cancer to donating a loved one’s organs for transplantation, communication is the foundation of positive healthcare outcomes.

That’s why we are home to multiple federally funded research projects that examine how people communicate about health and healthcare and how this impact their lives.
