Dr. Jain speaks with FOX17

Dr. Jain and Tricia Pendergrast speak with FOX17 in Grand Rapids about their recent paper out in JAMA Internal Medicine detailing harassment of physicians on social media.

Dr. Jain, who’s an assistant professor of medicine at the University of Illinois at Chicago, worked alongside 2nd-year Northwestern University medical student Tricia Pendergrast and a few others for the study. She said physicians told them that bullies in the past have posted their addresses and phone numbers online, left bad reviews on Yelp pages and have walked into their offices screaming at them.
