Yesterday, we sent out our recruiters for the first time in Washington, D.C.’s Takoma to garner interest and acquire study participants. We are planning to visit every corner of D.C. to gain as many potential study participants as we can from many different backgrounds. Look for us in areas such as Chevy Chase, Anacostia, Georgetown, and Columbia Heights!
Our recruiters will be braving the cold to attract individuals to our study to have their phone bills paid for the span of four months. They have been assuring potential participants of their privacy rights throughout the study, making light conversation about how to improve their approach with citizens, and administering a quick questionnaire through SurveyMonkey to measure participant eligibility.
