Gallaudet University Seeks Study Participants

Thu, 02/15/2018

With funding from the National Institutes of Health, Gallaudet University’s Deaf Health Communications and Quality of Life (DHCQoL) Center is conducting a national study that investigates health and quality of life outcomes in deaf and hard of hearing populations (PROMIS-DHH project). To date, the DHCQoL Center has collected data from more than 1,000 adults who are deaf or have a hearing loss who use American Sign Language. The next step is to include at least 250 more adults who are deaf or have a hearing loss and who use spoken English in this study.

The DHCQoL Center is inviting those who became deaf or hard of hearing prior to turning 13 years old and prefer spoken English to communicate to participate in the survey project. Each participant will receive a $25 American Express gift card as a gratuity. Download the study flyer for more information.

Your help with sharing this survey project would be greatly appreciated! If there are any questions or concerns, please email deafhealth@gallaudet.edu. This study has been approved by Gallaudet University’s Institutional Review Board (IRB).
