Welcome to My Survey

My name is Danya Garner, and I am a PhD Nursing Student at the University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB) in Galveston, Texas. I am currently working on my dissertation research study entitled: The Impact of Acculturation on Quality of Life in African American Women Living with A Lung or Colorectal Cancer Diagnosis.  I believe my research is important to African Americans as we have higher documented rates of lung and colorectal cancers compared to other cultural groups. 
By studying this topic, it will help establish baseline data about the impact of acculturation and demographics on perceived quality of life in African American women with colorectal or lung cancer to enable nurses to be more equipped to provide culturally sensitive care. 

The survey should take about 30 - 45 minutes, but you do not need to complete it in one session; you can leave and later return to the survey via the link to finish. Just be sure to completely finish a page and click "Next" to save your progress up to that point.
