Interested in Participating in a Health Communication Survey?

I recently became aware of a health-related study / survey that I wanted to share with you.

Purdue University is currently working on a health communication study. Specifically, they’re looking to examine how information sharing behavior through online communities influences coping strategies among people with chronic conditions including cancer, diabetes, lupus, etc.

The study / survey is purely academic in nature and takes no longer than 5-7 minutes to complete. In the survey, they use the term “blog” to refer to any online activity where you might read or share information in communities such as blogs, internet forums, and discussion boards.

If you are interested in participating, you can take the survey here. You can take the survey whether you live in the United States, or around the world.

Purdue University hopes 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 you choose to take the survey, thank you for doing so.

Until next time,
