How do mindsets about illness & treatment affect biomarkers of inflammation & treatment outcomes in patients w/ chronic illness?

Half of all Americans are diagnosed with one or more chronic illnesses, like heart disease and cancer. Mindsets about these illnesses may have a profound impact on the diagnosis, progression, and treatment of these illnesses. This study aims to: (1) understand the distribution of mindsets held by a diverse group of both healthy and chronically ill Americans, and (2) identify relationships between these mindsets, biomarkers of inflammatory processes, treatment outcomes, and quality of life.
