Farm parents sought for research study
The National Children’s Center for Rural and Agricultural Health and Safety, part of the National Farm Medicine Center at Marshfield Clinic Research Institute, is recruiting farm parents to participate in a study assessing the effects of reading injury news articles.
Parents will earn a total of $50 for the course of the study and an additional $20 by completing a one-year follow-up. Eligible farm parents will fill out two online surveys and read four news articles during a six-week period, answering a few questions along the way.
