Hi, my name is John Laugesen, and I am a PhD Student at McMaster University in Hamilton, Canada. I have been a member of TuDiabetes.org since April of this year, when I was diagnosed as pre-diabetic (HbA1c of 6.1)
I am currently completing my PhD thesis work, which examines the factors involved in the adoption of Electronic Personal Health Records (ePHRs) by persons with Type 2 Diabetes. Don't worry if you don't know what ePHRs are, as the study will explain that!
The study involves participants watching a two video clips, and answering a set of survey questions. The entire process can be conducted online. The study has been approved by the McMaster Research Ethics Board, and has also been approved by TuDiabetes Administration for posting on this site.
Participants in the survey will be entered into a draw for 1 of 6 prizes (2 - $100 Amazon gift cards and 4 - $50 Amazon gift cards are available). The entire process takes approximately 25-30 minutes.
If you have already completed my earlier pilot survey in July of this year, or if you have already received an email invite to participate in this current survey, please do not click the link below, as you can only complete the survey process once.
If you (or someone you know) have Type 2 Diabetes, are 18 years or older, have not previously participated in this study, and are interested in completing this survey, please click the following link:

Hi John. You might want to put "Type 2 Diabetes" in bold if that is your target audience as many TuD members are Type 1.
Thanks for the advice. I have now put Type 2 Diabetes in bold.
This survey has been approved by the TuDiabetes Administration Team.
