My name is Emily Johnson, and I am a graduate student at the University of Kentucky studying couple and family therapy. I am hoping to gain participants for my research study. It is still a one-time 30-minute survey. To be eligible for this study, you must be over the age of 18, you or a family member must have (or have had) a cancer diagnosis in active treatment. By completing the survey, you have the option to enter a drawing that gives you a chance in winning a $100 check.
This study is very important to me, as I lost my own father to cancer in June 2015, and understand that this is an extremely stressful experience. I hope to use this data to advocate for mental health care as a part of cancer treatment. This study has been approved by the Institutional Review Board of the University of Kentucky and is funded by the Phil Richards Endowment. If you have any questions regarding this study, I am happy to answer any questions you may have. The link to the survey will be attached below, as well as the recruitment flyer. Please pass this information along if you are in contact with more people who would be willing to participate!
