The University of Michigan Center for Managing Chronic Disease and Advocacy for Patients with Chronic Illness, Inc. is searching for people with chronic illnesses to participate in an online survey.  The center has been awarded a grant by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to study the obstacles facing the chronically ill and caregivers as well as interventions that do and do not work to surmount those obstacles.  The study will also look at the ways in which work done by the NIH, including research and trials, may be helpful to people with chronic illnesses.

To qualify for participation in the survey, you must have a chronic illness, such as MS, and be at least 18 years old.  The survey, which was developed with the help of 12 people with chronic illness and caregivers, can be taken online at http://chronicdisease.survey.sgizmo.com.

If for any reason you are unable to take the survey online, or you would prefer to be interviewed by telephone, or if you have questions about the research, contact Shelley Stoll at (734)764-7136.
