Researchers seek participants for mothers and MS study


Researchers at Northern Illinois University are looking for mothers diagnosed with multiple sclerosis to participate in an online study. You will be asked personal questions online that will include the severity of your illness, how you feel about yourself, your parenting behaviors, your relationship(s) with other individuals responsible for your child, and your child’s psychological functioning.

The first survey does not seek any personal or contact information. At the end of the first survey, there will be a link to a second, separate survey where participants have the option to enter their contact information only for the purpose of entering a random drawing at the end. Once the drawing is over, all contact information will be deleted. Data will be stored in a password protected online survey website that only the researchers will have access to on password protected computers.

Mothers 18 years of age or older who have been diagnosed with MS and have at least one child aged 6 to 18 may participate in this online study. This should take between 30-45 minutes to complete. Once the survey is complete, you will be entered in a drawing to win a $100 cash prize.
