Posted Feb 02 2009 10:54pm
If you are a college student diagnosed with a(n) autoimmune related disease(s), then you may be eligible to participate in the Needs Assessment of College Students Diagnosed with Autoimmune Related Diseases study. It's an anonymous online questionnaire (created by researchers at Indiana University Bloomington) asking about your health related academic problems, needs, perceptions, and experiences of living with an autoimmune related disease while attending college.
More than 100 autoimmune related diseases (i.e. lupus, ulcerative colitis, type 1 diabetes, multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, juvenile/rheumatoid arthritis, etc.) affect more than 23 million Americans. No data is available on the incidence, prevalence or needs of college students diagnosed with autoimmune related diseases.
To participate in the study, you must be:
18 or older
currently enrolled full time or part time in a 4-year institute of higher education, and
diagnosed with one or more autoimmune related diseases by your health care provider.
Optional entry to win one of 10 $25 gift cards (5 from Target and 5 from Wal-Mart).
