Hi Hiking Dykes, My Friend Mickey posted this to SF Walking Dykes... I think it would be valuable for our hikers to contribute.
Here are the details:
writing to invite you to participate in a research study about health literacy and confidence about healthcare situations among older LGBT people. Participation is totally voluntary. If you decide to participate, you will complete one or two online surveys (the link to the survey is posted below). The first survey takes about 20 minutes, and you will be asked if you want to participate in a second survey that takes only 5-10 minutes. The beginning section of the survey outlines all the details about the study. We will keep all information confidential, and there are no costs associated with the study. There are no benefits to you personally. You will be eligible to enter a drawing for a chance to win one of five $25 gift cards.
We would also appreciate it if you would forward this email to your friends who fit the criteria (age 40 or older, identifies as LGBT, and can complete an online survey in English). Survey link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/6VKC7KD
This project was approved by the Institutional Review Board at San Francisco State University (Protocol #14-13) on April 1, 2014 and expires on March 31, 2015.
