CRT - agument follow up

posted by .

Thank you for all your help tonight Ms. Sue - I have a few more questions before I'm done!
From the argument I cited - would this be a good explanation of valid/invalid, strong or weak, sound or unsound

The author’s argument is invalid, because the premise that physicians don’t give the same level of care to disabled people is not proven by the conclusion that disabled people have become distrustful of physicians.The argument, therefore, must be unsound because the premise is not proven to be true.The argument is a strong, inductive argument though. If it is true that physicians give lesser quality of care to disabled people, it would follow that disabled people would be distrustful of physicians.
