Hi everyone,

I’m a PhD student at the University of Michigan, and I’m conducting a research project on online health communities like HealingWell. I’m studying how people who suffer from chronic medical conditions use the Internet to collaborate and commiserate with each other.

I’ve received permission from Peter Waite to invite the members of this forum to participate in an interview for my study. The interview will last approximately one hour and will take place over the phone. The interview will cover topics related to how people collaborate in the community to find answers to members’ questions, views on medical expertise and doctors, and building community around medical conditions. All of your responses will be kept strictly anonymous.

People who participate in the interview will be compensated with a $25 gift card by mail.

If you’re interested in participating in my study, please email me at dmfoster@umich.edu and I’ll send you more information. My name is Drew Foster. Thank you for your consideration!


Note: This research is not corporately funded, and I am not associated with any prescription drug companies or medical institutions.

Hi everyone,

I'm checking in once more to invite people to participate in my study. I've had a great response so far from the HealingWell community, and I'd love to keep the momentum going and be able to schedule a few more people for interviews. So far interviews have been lasting between 45 and 60 minutes, and, again, people who participate will be compensated with a $25 gift card by mail.

If you're interested, please don't hesitate to email me so we can get you scheduled for an interview.

Thanks again!
Drew Foster

Hello everybody,

Thanks again so much to everyone who has participated in the interview. I've learned so much over the last few weeks by speaking with HW members from several of the message boards.

I'm looking for just five more people to interview in order to reach the quota for this stage of my study, so I'm posting one last message to ask if anyone is interested. Again, all your responses will be kept strictly anonymous, and you will receive a $25 gift card for your participation. Please email me at dmfoster@umich.edu if you're interested.

Thanks and best wishes,
Drew Foster
