I thought some of you may be interested in participating in a University of Michigan survey about how patients are using online resources to better manager their health. Here's the information that's been provided to me about the survey.

——————————————-

My name is Debra, and I'm part of a research team at the University of Michigan that is seeking to create better online tools for helping people improve and manage their health. We are currently pursuing a study to understand how people are currently using social websites for health-related activities.

For this study, we are hoping to talk to individuals who:

* Have Type II diabetes

* Are current members of at least one online health community (such as FatSecret)

* Are current members of Facebook

If you think you might be interested, please fill out our screening questionnaire here: http://www.surveygizmo.com/s/255112/s

If you meet the study criteria and complete a one-hour interview by phone and web conference with us, you will receive a $25 Amazon gift card as a thank-you.

Please forward this request to any person or group you think might be interested. Questions about the study can be directed at any member of the research team.

Research Team:

Debra Lauterbach, dlauter@umich.edu small, Research Intern and Study Coordinator

Sean Munson, samunson@umich.edu small, PhD Student
