Become a Participant
We need your help. We are currently looking for participants for the Health Information and Literacy study.
How do you participate?
Complete the interest form at the bottom of this page or contact the research coordinator at your nearest research site. Your coordinator will work with you to schedule an in-person visit. Once you're here, you'll be asked a series of short questions about yourself and your knowledge of health information. Next, you'll be asked to complete a series of online tasks, while the researcher observes. Lately, you'll be asked a few questions in a short one-on-one interview. This process will take about two hours. In return for your time and effort, you'll receive $40 for participating in this study.
Who is eligible to participate?
If you are an adult (18 years or older) living in Flint, MI(including surrounding areas of Genessee County, Southeastern Michigan, Washtenaw County, and Wayne County), Rochester, NY, or Chicago, IL, you are eligible to participate our study. We are recruiting deaf ASL users, hard of hearing, and hearing participants. We are currently seeking a total of 450 deaf ASL , 450 hard of hearing and 450 hearing participants across the three research sites.
