Research Opportunities

Focus Group Meetings


Seeking Deaf persons age 21-40 interested in participating in a one-time two hour focus group meeting in Rochester!

Focus Group Meeting Flyer

The interviews are limited to Deaf people who are now living in the Rochester (NY) area. The focus group will be conducted in ASL. We need your feedback on developing Deaf Weight Wise (DWW) 2.0. We will be asking about healthy eating and physical activity. The purpose of the group is to continue to develop culturally and linguistically appropriate healthy lifestyle research programs for Deaf people. Each participant will receive $30 dollars cash.
