Hello, my name is Dre Berendsen, and I am a 4th year graduate student in Clinical Psychology at John F. Kennedy University. I am conducting research, under the supervision of Alette Coble-Temple, PsyD, to explore experiences of those with food allergies, and I am writing to ask for your participation in my research study. The John F. Kennedy University Institutional Review Board (IRB) has approved this study.
Please feel free to pass on this information to anyone you might know who qualifies. Thank you very much.
Requirements for this study are:
INDIVIDUALS WITH A FOOD ALLERGY (FA)
PRESENCE OF FA WHILE ATTENDING MIDDLE OR HIGH SCHOOL
ATTENDED SCHOOL IN THE U.S.
CURRENTLY BETWEEN THE AGES OF 18-29
IF THIS DESCRIBES YOU, THEN YOU MAY QUALIFY FOR THIS STUDY
I am seeking participants for a research project to better understand the experience of individuals with food allergy, including the various impacts of these experiences.
Participants will be asked to respond to an online, anonymous survey containing approximately 100 short items (about 15-30 minutes).
I hope this research study will contribute to the Food Allergy literature and will provide scientific basis for assistance and intervention for those students with food allergies in the U.S. education system.
Participation is completely voluntary and responses will not be linked with an individual’s identity. You may withdraw from the questionnaire at any time.
If you are interested in participating, please contact me for a link to the survey or go to: FA Survey
