A Postdoctoral Scholar at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) is conducting a study to understand the health behaviors of South Asians in the United States and is looking for people to complete an online survey. Please see his message below.
Dear South Asian community member:
I am writing to request your assistance to help improve South Asian health, given your valuable role representing an important segment of the South Asian community. Despite our rapid population growth and important contributions in this country, little public funds are spent on research to understand and address the unique health concerns that South Asians face. By focusing on South Asians specifically, I hope to help draw more resources to eventually help improve the health of this population. Accordingly, I am dedicating some of my time as a trainee to collect some preliminary data to support larger-scale funding of studies which prioritizes our community’s health.
It is with this commitment in mind that I request your assistance. The following link provides access to a brief health survey which I am hoping you might complete at a convenient time. For your time and effort to complete the survey, you will be entered into a raffle for a $250 gift certificate from the Apple Store.
Please feel free to forward this message to other networks of South Asians with whom you may interact. There will be multiple drawings for such prizes through the next few months.
I thank you in advance for your consideration. If you have any questions or would like more information, please don’t hesitate to contact me. In addition, if I can be of any assistance to you or your organization, please feel free to be in touch.
