IC’er makes $225 participating in a research study
Posted Mar 22 2011 3:10pm
I just received this email from an ICN forum member! She reminded me and hopefully you that you can help advance the IC research movement and make a little $ on the side by participating in some very easy studies. In some cases, it’s an interview or survey or, as in the Stanford Pelvic Pain Study, it may take a but more! But, in any case, the IC movement is strengthened by the patients who participate and, to them, I say ((((Thank you!)))) – Jill
(From ICN Member Nyema) Stanford is part of the Multidisciplinary Approach to Pelvic Pain (MAPP) study. They are looking for more patients and they pay well.
It involves long onsite interviews, questionaires, MRI, and at home surveys. It is a year long study. After spending the day at Stanford, i went home with $225. Since i am unable to work because of my IC, this money really helped.
