Caregivers Needed for Food Allergy Interviews

"My name is Rebeca, and I work at Global Patients, an IQVIA business. We are currently conducting a research study on food allergies and would like caregivers of children to participate.

This research study consists of a web-assisted interview in the US, which will last around 60 minutes and for which you will receive an honorarium of USD135 (USD100 for completing the interview, and USD35 for providing a confirmation of diagnosis) via virtual card.

There is no medical treatment being provided as part of this study. The research is completely anonymous, and no questions will be asked which could allow to identify you as a participant. All data collected during this research will be treated anonymously, confidentially, and reported in aggregate form.

In order to confirm that you are eligible for this study, I will need to ask you a few preliminary questions on a quick phone call.

We hope you will find the time to share your views and experiences for this research study."
