    Hello,

    I am a research coordinator in the College of Kinesiology at the University of Saskatchewan. I am working for Dr. Nancy Gyurcsik, who was given a multi-study research grant by the federal granting agency the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC). The purpose of the grant is to study what may or may not keep women with arthritis from doing physical activity.

    We are currently recruiting men and women, at least 21 years of age, who have been told by their doctor that they have arthritis of any type.

    To participate in this study, these men and women only need to fill out 2 short online surveys, which can be done from any computer. The first survey takes about 25 minutes, and the second is a 5-minute follow-up survey 2 weeks later.

    All participants and their answers will be anonymous. (The University of Saskatchewan Research Ethics Board has approved this study: Beh # 05-230.)

    Men and women can take the survey online by typing in, or copying and pasting, the following web address:

    https://survey.usask.ca/survey.php?sid=17603

    We would greatly appreciate if you could pass on the above link to this survey to potential participants.

    If you have any questions, please feel free to email me back or contact the lead researcher, Dr. Nancy Gyurcsik, by telephone (1-306-966-1075) or email (nancy.gyurcsik@usask.ca). Dr. Gyurcsik is in the College of Kinesiology at the University of Saskatchewan.

    Thank you very much,
