The Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Southern California is conducting a research study looking at interpersonal communication patterns of people who have been diagnosed with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). The purpose of this study is to understand the possible link between IBS symptom severity and how one communicates with their closest relational partner. We are seeking volunteers to complete an approximately 15-minute online survey that includes questions about demographic and relational information, interpersonal communication patterns with a close relational partner, and severity of IBS symptoms.
To qualify for this study, you must meet the following criteria:

  1. Be diagnosed by a physician with IBS at least three months ago
  2. Consider IBS to be your primary health problem
  3. Not be diagnosed by a physician with any other gastrointestinal disorder
  4. Not currently be pregnant

 The first 150 IBS-diagnosed participants will receive a $5 Amazon.com gift card via email once they have completed the online survey.

If you would like to participate, please type this web address into your internet browser: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s.asp?u=436613076272


If you have any questions or concerns about this research, please contact the study coordinator at bevanj@usc.edu.

I hope you can get plenty of participants here to help your study.  I already took your survey... it was pretty quick  tongue

Good luck!
