Seeking survivors of abuse for a study

Hi everyone -
The College of Public Health is conducting a series of focus groups with adult survivors of childhood physical abuse and/or neglect. We will not be asking about personal experiences but rather will be asking survivors what they think the impacts are on health effects of abuse on children as well as the long-term effects into adulthood. If qualified, there will be a $50 incentive for those who participate. I have listed some information below but if you are interested or know someone who might be and want more info or want to see if you are qualified, please contact me via phone (706-542-7385) or by email (knfoster@uga.edu).
Thanks,
Kelly
