Prolonged viewing of Boston Marathon bombings media coverage tied to acute stress

Roxane Cohen Silver's
recently published study in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences  found that six or more daily hours of exposure to media coverage of the Boston Marathon bombings in the week afterward was linked to more acute stress than having been at or near the marathon. For this study, Silver collaborated with Alison Holman, Associate Professor of Nursing Science and Dana Garfin, Postdoctoral Research Scientist in the Department of Psychology and Social Behavior.
