Hey all MoCoers,

Im working on a on a study with the National Cancer Institute (NCI) to investigate how people find, use, and understand health information. Were based out of Rockville, MD and are looking for smokers, former smokers, cancer patients, and cancer survivors in Maryland. If you or anyone you know fits into one of these categories and would like to help us out (we'll pay you for your time if you qualify), link to sign up is at the bottom of my post.

To be a bit more specific about or study, were conducting the Health Information National Trends Survey (HINTS) to learn about how former smokers, smokers, cancer patients and cancer survivors get their health information. And to this end we are conducting paid focus groups in Rockville for the audiences mentioned above.

For full transparency, I'm a contractor for NCI out of Westat Health Communications. We do lots of government funded research, but personally I just work in spreading public health messages and helping advance evidence based research in the digital space.
Thanks for taking the time to read. And please do let me know if you have any Qs. I'll be happy to answer what I can.

TL;DR: If you or anyone you know is a smoker (including e-cigarettes), former smoker, cancer patient, or former cancer patient, the National Cancer Institute wants to know how you get your health information. The link below will take you to a page to sign-up for paid focus groups to this end. We'll call you for a brief screener survey over the phone, and then invite you if you qualify.
