This project will explore how individuals make decisions about: 1) vaccinations, 2) sexual behavior, 3) preventative medication and health habits, 4) medical procedures and treatment, and 5) health insurance coverage. The study will map existing case law and regulations on the presentation of risk-related information, such as the validity and interpretation of waivers and disclaimers and will uncover patterns in choices and preferences building on behavioral insights. Deliverables for this project include journal articles, law briefs, conference presentations, policy briefs and a broader audience book, tentatively titled Healthy Choices: How We Decide About Our Health and Well Being.
