About This Project

Sick or injured patients depend upon healthcare providers to heal what ails them. But what if the very act of seeking healthcare was harmful? Healthcare institutions are often trusted to abide by the Hippocratic oath to "First, do no harm." In most cases, compassionate care allays concerns and speeds recovery. I seek to understand how the violation of this trust - institutional betrayal - may impact health and health-related behavior.
