Participate in New Research Study for Women

A study at Wayne State University is looking for African American women with sickle cell disease who are over the age of 18 to participate in a research study about their reproductive health.

Women will be asked to participate in a 1 ½ – 2 hour interview and complete a short 5 minute questionnaire. Participants will be compensated for participation. The focus of this study is to explore how women with sickle cell disease feel about their reproductive health and approach this aspect of their lives. Women must be willing to share information about the details of their reproductive health activities.
