Dear members of EmpowHer,
My name is Justin Guild and I’m a graduate research assistant currently working with Dr. Jeong-Nam Kim at Purdue University on a health communication study.
Specifically, our research explores how information sharing behavior through online communities (such as blogs) influences coping strategies among people with chronic conditions including cancer, diabetes, depression, etc. and their family members.
I’m contacting you to seek permission to place a link to our online web survey on your blog to invite readers and other visitors to participate. The survey is purely academic in nature and takes no longer than 5-7 minutes to complete.
The web survey can be found by clicking on this link: http://www.createsurvey.com/c/70237-Os3LDl/
The findings of this study could lead to better management capacities of chronic diseases as well as an increase in funding for research related to online communities.
If possible, we would be very appreciative if you could please forward the link to the web survey to other people you may know with chronic conditions.
If you have any questions, or would like additional information, please don’t hesitate to contact me at
Thank you for your time and consideration.
