Impact of Technology on Stigmatized Communities

Study Overview

This research study evaluates views and opinions about how technology (e.g. computer, smartphones, etc.) impacts coping strategies used to come to terms with a stigmatized condition or personal trait (e.g. having a chronic illness, not being heterosexual, etc.) In the case of chronic illnesses (e.g. HIV, etc.), apart from coping mechanisms, we want to also find out how technology can aid in prevention and treatment.
