Is this a HIPAA violation?
I'm not sure if I am overthinking this. In one of my essays, I am writing about my experience growing up with alcoholic parents, and I was going to mention that my father was eventually diagnosed with cirrhosis. However, because my parents names are listed on the AMCAS application, is this technically a HIPAA violation? Should I avoid even discussing the alcoholism, or would that part be okay since it is not an official disease diagnosis?
