Enter Megan Hopper, a Ph.D. candidate from the Department of Communications at the University of Missouri. She's doing her dissertation research on the media messages that are directed at pregnant women.
Her results should be intriguing for everyone, since pregnant women are certainly prime targets for all kinds of products, services, and very importantly, health alerts. Hopper hopes her online survey will give pregnant women a voice within the conversation. She's aiming for 600 subjects, and all participants who complete the approximately 45-minute survey will receive a chance at receiving a $50 Amazon gift certification.
In this interview blogpost, Hopper adds that survey-takers who reside near Columbia, St. Louis, or Kansas City, Missouri can contact her about a greater level of participation (with compensation) in the study.
