Request for Research Participation

Our names are Alejandra Gonzalez and Samsara Soto, and we are students in the Counseling Psychology Program at the University of Akron. We are reaching out to ask if you might be willing to help disseminate this request for research participants to anyone who may be interested in participating. Any assistance would be very much appreciated. We are recruiting participants to complete either or both brief online surveys. It is estimated that each survey will take 15-20 minutes to complete. After the completion of either survey, participants have the option to be entered in a raffle for three $50 gift cards per survey.

For the first survey, any woman who is 18 or older, and identifies as Mexican American, Mexican immigrant, Chicana, or of Mexican descent, can participate in this study. The survey can be completed in English or Spanish. The purpose of this research study is to better understand Mexican American women’s experiences with different relationship behaviors, how difficult experiences impact women’s health, and potential protective factors. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at ag195@zips.uakron.edu. This research has been approved by The University of Akron Institutional Review Board (IRB #: 20170915).
