I am a Doctoral candidate at George Mason University. I am currently conducting research to explore the perceptions of Chinese American women regarding nutrition education in the US.

I am currently recruiting participants to complete an online questionnaire (that includes a written narrative). Do you know anyone that meets the following criteria?

• A woman born in mainland China
• Immigrated to the US between the ages of 12 and 15
• Currently between 22 and 30 years of age

Is there anyone that you know that may meet these criteria? If so, could you email them this link:

There are two parts of the survey. In part one, participants will be asked to verify that they meet the research criteria. In part two, they will be asked to share an experience they have had in regards to nutrition. This survey should take no more than 15 minutes. Responses must be provided in English throughout the study. Upon completion of this survey participants can choose to be entered into a drawing for a $50 Amazon.com gift card.

Participants who live in the DC metro area (up to 100 miles away from Fairfax, VA) will be invited to participate in two face-to face-interviews in a convenient location to further discuss their thoughts and experience with this topic. I will drive to meet the participant in a location that is convenient for them. As compensation, participants who complete the two interviews will receive a $25 Amazon.com gift card for the first interview and an additional $25 Amazon.com gift card for the second interview, for a total of $50 (in Amazon.com gift cards), after each interview has been completed.

Thank you for your help in this research. Please feel free to pass this on to others that may be eligible and interested in helping.

Thanks!
