I was wondering if you would mind assisting me with my study for my
doctorate which I am in the final stages of completing?
I have been asking all my friends and colleagues in the lactation
world to please help me get the word out that my study on induced
lactation is up on the internet in the form of a web-based survey.
Kindly see the attached flyer inviting mothers who have induced
lactation to participate in a web-based study that will give them the
opportunity to share their experience. This is the first time anyone
has looked at this population in over 30 years.
I'm trying to gather as many women who induced lactation as possible.
It is not necessary for them to have followed a particular protocol
and so all women who induced lactation and provided breastmilk to
their infants are welcome to participate.
You may also reach the information via the direct link:
Kindly pass on this information to anyone you feel would be
interested and ask anyone who wishes to participate to please contact
me at <mailto:email@example.com >firstname.lastname@example.org to
obtain their unique ID and password to access the survey. These IDs
and passwords are being issued to help ensure confidentiality.
The study was reviewed and received ethics clearance through the
Institutional Review Board of the Union Institute and University as
well as the Office of Research Ethics, University of Waterloo.
Thank you in advance for your help. It is most appreciated.
