Thank you for helping!

Aloha! Our names are Marielle Hampton, Heather Greenwood, and Hallie Cristobal and we are extension agents with the University of Hawai‘i. You are invited to take part in a research study by taking a 5-10 minute survey about needs for your family and community.

What am I being asked to do?

If you participate in this project, you will be asked to fill out a survey.

Taking part in this study is your choice.

Your participation in this study is completely voluntary. You may stop participating at any time. If you choose to leave the survey before the end, there will be no penalty or loss to you. You are not required to answer every question.

Why is this study being done?

This survey will collect information about your needs and concerns for your community, and provide ideas for how the University of Hawai‘i and other educators can best address those needs through programs.

What will happen if I decide to take part in this study?

The survey will consist of 15 - 25 multiple choice and open-ended questions. It will take 5 – 10 minutes to complete. The survey will include questions like, “How would you rate your need for programs to support physical health?” or “Would you or your family attend programs that provide family and relationship support?”

What are the risks and benefits of taking part in this study?

We believe there is little risk to you for participating in this research project. You may become stressed or uncomfortable answering any of the survey questions. If you do become stressed or uncomfortable, you can skip the question or take a break. You can also stop taking the survey or you can withdraw from the project altogether. 

There will be no direct benefit to you for participating in this survey. The results of this project may help improve the usefulness, availability, and delivery of education programs in your community.
