I am a psychology graduate student at Boston University doing my dissertation research on community supports. I'm trying to learn what aspects of social connections are the most powerful in helping people with various conditions stay psychologically healthy and be able to enjoy life.
This is clearly a wonderful community of people who are interested in sharing information and helping each other out. Would any of you who are in the Boston, MA area be interested in participating in my study?
I am looking for people who are between 16-30 years old and have been diagnosed with Type I diabetes sometime in the past five years. The study involves one meeting of about 2 hours - mostly interviews and questionnaires (no pills or medical procedures). I keep everything strictly confidential. Participants are compensated $50 for their time and contribution.
If you're interested, please free to contact me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 617-516-5121. You can also go to the study website for more details at http://diabetesresearchstudy.org/.
Thanks very much!
