About Me

Ms. Sperber gathers, synthesizes, and tells the stories behind the data. Currently, she is

completing her PhD Health Policy at the Heller School at Brandeis University. Her research

explores a novel online health community based on Twitter, and seeks to examine the notion of

patient centered care within the context of a public social network. At its core, this research asks

communicate about/engage in health, and posits that this type of community may act as a

meaningful forum for interdisciplinary (patients included) exchange as well as traditional

emotional and informational support.
