Please publicize it and pass it along. Thank you. Ann Morris Bliss BE PART OF SOMETHING BIG! Researchers at Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School hope to survey 12,000 blind and visually impaired women in order to identify risk factors associated with certain health disorders, such as breast cancer and sleep problems. The results of the survey will help both blind and sighted women make more informed lifestyle choices. A summary of the results will be sent to all participants annually. The survey is open to all women aged 18 or over who are legally blind. You can register for and complete the survey in the convenience of your own home using our rigorously tested Section 508 compliant website at < <http://www.bvihealthsurvey.bwh.Harvard.edu/> http://www.bvihealthsurvey.bwh.Harvard.edu/> <outbind://4/www.bvihealthsurvey.bwh.harvard.edu> www.bvihealthsurvey.bwh.harvard.edu. The website also includes a tutorial on completing forms, written by expert screen reader users. The survey may also be completed in Braille, by audio tape, in large print or over the phone.
