Below is another announcement about an online survey in need of Asian American respondents:
My name is Young-Ran Lee, research scholar. I am working with Dr. Im, Ph D, MPH, RN, Professor, School of Nursing, University of Texas, Austin. We are currently conducting an Internet survey study entitled The Use of Internet Cancer Support Groups among Asian Americans Living with Cancer.
In the study, an Internet survey and an online forum using a Web site will be conducted to get information on the use of Internet Cancer Support Groups of Asian American cancer patients. This study is funded by the Center for Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Research in Underserved Populations (CHPR) and the Expedited Proposal-Enhancement Grants (EP-EG).
We really hope that you permit to advertise about our research to your organization or friends or patients. Could you help us? Your helping will be greatly appreciated.
If someone is a cancer patient aged at least 18 years who can read and write English and whose self-reported ethnic identity is Asian American, she/he is invited to join the study. Her/his involvement in the study will consist of the following: (a) about 30 minutes are usually needed to complete the Internet survey; and (b) online forums will be conducted with the 9 topics for 1 month, should she/he agree to participate in and are selected for the additional online forum discussion.
Reimbursement for individual participation will be made by providing $10 gift certificate per internet survey participant and $50 gift certificate per online forum participant.
