Research! Technology-Related Communication Around Cancer-Related Events


Researchers at Hunter College in New York City are conducting a research study on technology-related communication around cancer-related events.

What does it involve?

You’ll be asked to complete a questionnaire about cancer-related communication and well-being. The questionnaire should last 30-45 minutes and can be taken on a computer or a cell phone. Optionally, at the end of the questionnaire you can express interest in taking part in the second part of the study which involves self-identifying a member of your social support network and participating together in a cancer-related discussion over Skype with a member of the research team.

You will have the opportunity to voluntarily provide your email address in order to enter a drawing to win 1 of 4 $25 gift cards for completing the questionnaire. If you decide to take part in the Skype part of the research study, you and your social support member will each receive $25.

Who can participate?

Young adults between the ages of 18-39 who have been diagnosed with cancer, as a young adult (at 18 or older) within the past 5 years.
