Identifying Emotional and Social Support Needs of Adolescents with Alopecia Areata
Investigators at the University of Minnesota are recruiting for a research study to identify the emotional and social support needs of adolescents with alopecia areata. The study is looking to interview parents and adolescents age 13-17 who have been diagnosed with alopecia areata and living with symptoms for at least 6 months. The total interview time is expected to be about 90 minutes and will take place either over Zoom (teleconference software) or phone, depending on your preference.
No travel or in-person meetings are required. The interviews will be recorded to create transcripts and look for patterns across participants. Detailed information about the study, including a consent form for the parent and an assent form for the adolescent, are available online HERE. If you are interested in participating, you will be asked to complete a brief online survey to provide some background information and how you would like to be contacted to schedule the interview.
If you have any questions about the research study, please contact Dr. Ian MacFarlane at firstname.lastname@example.org.
