A research study at the University of Minnesota is seeking volunteers to learn more about the information and support needs of parents of children with alopecia areata. If you are a parent with one child that has been clinically diagnosed with alopecia areata, your participation in a 15-minute online survey will help us better understand the needs and improve support for parents of children with alopecia areata.

Participants will be asked to complete an online survey which includes demographic questions, as well as questions about your experience as a parent. This survey is completely anonymous and no identifying information will be collected. Participation in this study is voluntary and you may opt out of the survey at any time.

If you have any questions, comments or concerns about this study, please contact Dayna Cohen at or Dr. Maria Hordinsky at If you have any questions or concerns regarding this study and would like to talk to someone other than the researchers, you are encouraged to contact the Research Subjects’ Advocate Line at (612) 625-1650 or complete the Feedback Form online here
