Survey Opportunity

Interested in participating in an important study on eHealth? Do you qualify? See info and flyer below.
“We now have 65 parents enrolled in our study! But, to really understand how helpful eHealth can be for the parents we serve, we need even more. If your child is age birth to 42 months and has hearing aids, and you have access to the internet, you are eligible to participate. If you participate through the entire study, you may earn a $50 Amazon eGift card. You may enroll by calling the number listed in the image below. Spread the word!”
