Where? When?

  • No need to go anywhere! After you join the study, you’ll take a survey on your phone or computer. Then you can download the app that we ask you to use for 3 months.
  • There are three paid surveys to take. The surveys ask about who you are, your diet, experiences with COVID, and about relationships and behaviors. One you will take and get paid for before you use the app. Then you'll take it again 3 months after you’re done using the app, and one last time 6 months after you’re done with the app.
  • Do you have friends interested in joining a paid study to use an app and taking a few surveys? We will pay you for getting three people to join the study!

How?

  • Ready to join?! See if you meet the criteria to join. If you are eligible, you will then take the survey which is about 20 minutes long.
  • After the survey, you will receive instructions to download the app we want you to use.
  • You will get paid in e-gift cards. You'll need to give us an email address so we can send you the money ASAP.
  • Remember, all the info you give us is anonymous and we will keep it private. You don’t have to ask for your parents’ or guardian’s permission.

Who?

  • This study is for young black or interracial black guys between 14-17 who are attracted to other guys.
  • All your answers to the survey questions are kept private. We won’t share your answers and we don’t ask for your name. You do not need your parents’ or guardians’ permission to join the study or use the apps.

Why?

This study will help researchers and educators learn more about the health needs of young black guys. You will be contributing to science! The study is done by ETR and dfusion, two companies that create and research innovative tech-based programs to improve people’s health. The study is funded by The National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities.
