Focus Group Participants Needed

Will you consider participating in a focus group session as part of a study to assess how people gather, assess and synthesize information in order to solve problems and make decisions?

We need 5-6 people for each session and you’ll be asked to consider a recent situation when you needed to gather information and to discuss how you went about managing that situation: what worked well for you, and what you perceived as the barriers to a successful outcome.

Food will be provided at each session and participants will receive a small gift as a token of our thanks.

Sessions will be held in November and December, see the schedule below. If you’re interested, email me at mailto:phiggin@uab.edu to let me know which session you'd like to attend. If you'd prefer to participate in a separate virtual focus group, contact Lee Vucovich at mailto:lvucovi@uab.edu.

Undergraduate Students November 14 11:30 – 1:00 pm
Graduate/professional students November 16 5:00 – 6:30 pm

Thanks!

Reynolds Lecture Thursday

There is another Reynolds Lecture this Thursday in the LHL Ireland Room. The topic this month is, “Joseph Goldberger’s War on Pellagra.” Attendance and lunch are free, though there were so many attendees last month that we ran out of food. So, come early!

Find out more at the LHL home page.
