July 25th, 2012 - CIHE Begins Recruitment for the Bronx Birth Study

A message from Yohansa Fernandez, the research coordinatior:

We are preparing to embark on a study that focuses on women just like you that have recently had children. The study looks to interview women about their experiences during pregnancy. I would like to invite the opportunity for you to participate in the study. Native Spanish speakers are encouraged to participate. In order to participate you would have to have been 18 at the time of birth, had a baby in the past 2 years and lived in the South Bronx. If you qualify and complete the survey you will be reimbursed $20 and a full fare metrocard for your time.

Please see the flyers attached and feel free to call with any questions. Thank You for your time. If you know anyone who may be willing to participate feel free to pass the flyer along.

Thanks again!
