Check, Check..

Tomorrow I'm finally getting my heart and lungs checked out post-Hodge style. I'm a little nervous, but at the same point I'm really relieved that we'll get to the bottom of things. Maybe they can give me physical therapy or something to help get me on the way to normal faster. At least soon we'll know if I'm just outta shape due to steroid use or if my heart and lungs are damaged.

Anywho, that's what I'll be spending my Wednesday doing -- blowing into a tube as hard as I can and then getting yelled at for not doing it right... and then getting felt up my a technician checking out my heart. Can't wait! Ha!

Hi Kelly,

My name is Justin Guild and I’m a graduate research assistant currently working with Dr. Jeong-Nam Kim (http://www.cla.purdue.edu/communication/people/jnkim.shtml) at Purdue University on a health communication study.

Specifically, our research explores how information sharing behavior through online communities influences coping strategies among people with chronic conditions including cancer, diabetes, depression, etc.

I’m contacting you to seek permission to place a link to our online web survey on your blog to invite readers and other visitors to participate. The survey is purely academic in nature and takes no longer than 5-7 minutes to complete.

The web survey can be found by clicking on this link: http://www.createsurvey.com/c/70237-Os3LDl/

In the survey, we use the term “blog” to refer to any online activity where you might read or share information in communities such as personal web logs, internet forums, and discussion boards.

The findings of this study could lead to better management capacities of chronic diseases as well as an increase in funding for research related to online communities.

If you have any questions, or would like additional information, please don’t hesitate to contact me at jguild@purdue.edu.

Thank you for your time and consideration.


Justin Guild
