Research

Kathryn Greene's research program explores decision-making related to various health risks, or the central role of communication in preventing risk and maintaining health and wellness. The two main thrusts of her research are: 1) increasing involvement in message processing and exploring message features in prevention, especially with adolescent risk taking; and 2) how people choose to share or conceal health diagnoses or other information as they manage illness, both with close others such as spouses and with medical providers.
