I am a research coordinator in the College of Kinesiology at the University of
Saskatchewan. I am working for Dr. Nancy Gyurcsik, who was given a multi-study
research grant by the federal granting agency the Social Sciences and Humanities
Research Council of Canada (SSHRC). The purpose of the grant is to study what
may or may not keep women with arthritis from doing physical activity.
We are currently recruiting North American women, at least 21 years of age,
who have been told by their doctor that they have any type of arthritis.
To participate in this study, these women only need to fill out 2 short online
surveys, which can be done from any computer. The first survey takes about 25
minutes, and the second is a 5-minute follow-up survey 2 weeks later.
All participants and their answers will be anonymous. (The University of
Saskatchewan Research Ethics Board has approved this study: Beh # 05-230.)
This forum's moderator, Peter Waite, has approved this posting.
Women can do the survey online by typing in, or copying and pasting, the
following web address:
We would greatly appreciate your time and help with this important research!
Please feel free to share this link with friends or relatives who are affected by any form of arthritis.
The more participants we can get for this study the better our information will be.
If you have any questions, please feel free to email me (firstname.lastname@example.org)
or contact the lead researcher, Dr. Nancy Gyurcsik, by telephone (1-306-966-1075)
or email (email@example.com).
Thank you very much!
