Do you identify as a Black or African American woman? Are you between the ages of 18-34 and not currently pregnant?
If so, you may be eligible to participate in a research study with Boston University Medical Center about Preconception Health.
We are inviting young African American women to be part of a research study to help us test a computer program. It's a tool that women can use to be healthier now, and to be healthier in the future if they decide to have a baby. It is a year-long study that involves three phone calls with our research team and interaction with a computer program featuring the character "Gabby." There will be about 530 women in the study. About half will use the online program for one year, and the other half will not. The group you will be in will be chosen at random. After 6 months and 12 months we will call the women from both groups to talk about their health status and ask the group that used the online program for feedback.
All participants will receive $25 in gift cards for completing each of the 6-month and 12-month follow up phone calls. They may be eligible to win $100 gift card(s) in a monthly raffle.
