Angie Fagerlin studied psychology and literature at Hope College and received her PhD in experimental (cognitive) psychology at Kent State University. Her primary research focus is testing methods for communicating the risks and benefits of treatment to patients (e.g., in decision aids) and testing the use of decision aids in clinical practice. Her current research is testing how decision aids affect patient-physician communication.  Her outside interests include supporting Ann Arbor restaurants (given that her interests do not include cooking), running, and traveling with her husband and sons.
