Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
What is this study about?
This study is being conducted by EurekaFacts and is sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). We are recruiting Spanish-speaking Hispanic/Latina women (18 years and older) to join in small group conversations to talk about your thoughts, feelings, and experiences with women’s health. The information we learn from the small group conversations will help CDC find ways to talk with Hispanic/Latina women about their health and the role that culture plays in their health choices.
Where will the conversation sessions take place?
The sessions will be held either online using Zoom or in person, depending on the geographical area. If eligible and selected, a EurekaFacts staff member will contact participants about the date and time of the sessions. For online, the link to a Zoom session will be provided after confirmation for participation. For in person, the address will be provided after confirmation for participation.
What will happen during the sessions?
During the sessions, participants will talk about their thoughts and experiences as Hispanic/Latina women living in the United States, particularly as it relates to health. A trained moderator will facilitate the sessions to cover topics related to Hispanic/Latina women’s health and the role that culture plays in their health choices. Topics of conversation include:
- Experiences as Hispanic/Latina women and cultural influences
- Experiences with health care providers and conversations of pregnancy
- Experiences with food and vitamin choices
We will also share information about Hispanic/Latina women’s health and get feedback to improve this information.
All sessions will be held completely in Spanish. There will be no sessions in English.
Will information be kept private?
Yes, all information shared in conversation groups will be kept confidential. Each participant will be assigned a unique identifier (ID) and their name will not be linked to their answers. All information provided by participants may be used only for the study purposes and may not be disclosed, or used, in identifiable form for any other purpose except as required by law (20 U.S.C. §9573 and 6 U.S.C. §151). All sessions will be recorded and used solely for analysis purposes; no identifying information will be shared in our report.
How long will the session last?
Each conversation group will last about 90 minutes.
Is there an incentive for participating?
Yes. After the session, participants will receive $75.00 from a major credit card company. An e-gift card will be provided for online participation and a physical gift card for in-person participation.
For the e-gift card, please allow 7-10 business days for processing. The e-gift card will be sent via email from Virtual Incentives. Please check your Spam or Junk folder. Also, please note that the virtual incentives expire after 6 months.
What are the possible risks of being in the study?
There are no known risks to participating in this voluntary study, but you might feel uncomfortable talking about health experiences.
Who can I contact with questions or for further information?
Can I choose to end my participation at any time?
Participation in a session is completely voluntary. Participants have the right to refuse to answer any questions and may decide to leave at any time. If the participant chooses to leave early, we may need to reduce the gift card amount so that it is proportional to the level of participation.
