Questionnaire Study Blind Adults and Healthcare Providers

My name is Carmel and I am a research assistant with the Judgment and Decision Making Lab at the University of Texas at El Paso. In about a month the Judgment and Decision Making Lab will be conducting a study in the form of a questionnaire. The PI is a blind doctoral candidate conducting her dissertation research. We will be looking at blind and low vision adults and their experiences with healthcare providers (i.e. doctors, pharmacy technicians, health insurance agents).

All participants will be entered into a drawing to win an Amazon gift card. If you qualify for this study and are interested please contact the Judgment and Decision Making Lab via e-mail at or via phone at 915-747-8659.
If you know of anyone who qualifies and would be interested please share this message with them.
