Masters student seeking research participants to discuss careers in aging

To Whom It May Concern:

My name is Paul Cunnington and I am a graduate student from the Family and Consumer Sciences department at Western Michigan University. I am currently looking for potential participants to participate in my research study on what young professionals believe about increasing interest in choosing a career in the field of aging. The study will also look at the career paths of young professionals in aging.

Potential participants shall be between the ages of 22 and 35. The participants involved with this research project shall be professionals in the field of aging who work as one or more of the following career categories:

· Advocates

· Direct service providers

· Educators/trainers

· Managers/administrators

· Marketers and product developers

· Program planners and evaluators

· Researchers

I’m hoping to speak to more people who conduct research in the field of aging in some respect, but I’ll gladly speak to anyone who meets the study criterion.

The interview shall include questions about educational background, career path, interest in the field of aging, and increasing interest for careers in aging. The interview audio shall be recorded and later transcribed for analysis. All participants will be placed into a random drawing to win a $25 visa gift card.

If anyone would like to participate or has any questions about the study, please email or contact me at paul.s.cunnington or 517-526-3978.

Please feel free to pass on any information about this study to anyone who may be interested or may qualify. I have also attached a flyer explaining the study.

Thank you very much.
