Researchers seek participants for MS, parenting study


Western Kentucky University researchers are conducting a study about multiple sclerosis, parenting, and relationships. Participants must be older than 18 years of age, be a parent, and have multiple sclerosis.

This project will occur during a six month period and participants will be required to complete a questionnaire on three separate occasions: an initial questionnaire, then the second questionnaire three months later, and then a third questionnaire three months after the second.

After the completion of the first questionnaire, a $35 electronic Amazon.com gift card will be emailed to you. After the completion of the second and third questionnaires, you will receive a $20 electronic gift card from Amazon.com.

Personally identifiable information in the form of name and email address will be collected for use in sending study reminders and electronic gift cards. Your participation in this study is voluntary. If at any time you feel any discomfort or anxiety as a result of completing the questionnaire, you may choose to withdraw from participation. You may decline to answer any question and you have the right to withdraw from participation at any time. Withdrawal will not affect your relationship with Western Kentucky University in anyway. If you do not want to participate either simply stop participating or close the browser window. In order to receive the gift card compensation, you must finish the survey and submit a valid email address.
