Paid Market Research Study - Kidney Patients
jenniferinspiredopinions posted:
I work for an International Market Research firm, and we are currently looking for patients and parents of teenagers diagnosed with:Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) IgA Nephropathy / Berger's Disease Nephrotic Syndrome to participate in a unique research experience where they will be able to provide their opinions and experiences with our clients who are seeking to obtain as much feedback as possible in an effort to help combat the challenges of these conditions.

The patients would be participating in a study online for 15-20 minutes over a week of time and follow up with a webcam interview of 60 min the following week. They would be compensated $125 for the online portion + $75 for the web cam follow up. Please call 866-420-6860 and reference project #446, to see if you qualify.

Thank you,
