UNC Researchers Request Health Podcast Study Participants

Filed under: Study — @ April 16, 2007

Do you host a health-related podcast show or do you listen to one (well, you better be listening to this one at the very least! LOL!)? If so, then a doctoral student named Brie Turner-McGrievy, MS, RD in the school of Nutrition at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill wants to survey YOUR opinions about the podcast for a research project she is conducting and is willing to hook you up with a $10 iTunes gift card if you do.

Here is your invitation from Turner-McGrievy to participate:

“Researchers at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill are conducting a research study on the use of podcasting health information. They would love to get information about your experience with listening to health-related podcasts.

If you are 18 years of age or older and are interested in participating, please visit http://www.podstudy.com in order to complete a brief, questionnaire. Please click on the survey for Podcast Listeners.

It should only take about 15 minutes to complete and once you finish the survey, you will receive a gift card to iTunes for $10. Only the first 20 respondents can take the survey and receive a gift card so please visit the survey as soon as you can.”

If you listen to my podcast show “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” then I invite you to do this very short 16-question survey that took me LESS THAN FIVE MINUTES to complete. Since Turner-McGrievy is only accepting the survey answers from the first 20 people to respond, you’ll need to participate as soon as possible. Don’t delay and remember you are going to be a part of some very important research.


The results of this research study will be used for research and teaching purposes. Turner-McGrievy has said she will share those results with me once they are completed. You can contact her via e-mail if you have any questions about the survey at brie@unc.edu.

You are free to refuse to participate or withdraw from the study at any time without penalty and without jeopardy. My favorite part of the survey was about the “risks and discomforts” involved. Hmmm, I may break a nail typing my answers to the survey! LOL! Here’s what they wrote about it:

“We do not know of any personal risk or discomfort you will have from being in this study.”

Well now, I sure feel better about participating! Hee hee! If you’re ready, then you can TAKE THE SURVEY. It’s fun, educational, and you get that FREE iTunes gift card. WOO HOO!
