Hi Karen,

My name is Justin Guild and I’m a graduate research assistant currently working
with Dr. Jeong-Nam Kim
( at Purdue
University on a health communication study.

Specifically, our research explores how information sharing behavior through
online communities influences coping strategies among people with chronic
conditions including cancer, diabetes, depression, etc.

I’m contacting you to seek permission to place a link to our online web survey
on your blog to invite readers and other visitors to participate. The survey is
purely academic in nature and takes no longer than 5-7 minutes to complete.

The web survey can be found by clicking on this link:

In the survey, we use the term “blog” to refer to any online activity where you
might read or share information in communities such as personal web logs,
internet forums, and discussion boards.

The findings of this study could lead to better management capacities of
chronic diseases as well as an increase in funding for research related to
online communities.

If you have any questions, or would like additional information, please don’t
hesitate to contact me at

Thank you for your time and consideration.


Justin Guild
