Research Participant Survey
The University of Minnesota partnered with MHealth Fairview (formerly known as Fairview Health Services) to conduct a Research Participant Survey to understand how the University and its partners are doing and what we can do better.
Thank you to those that participated in the research volunteer survey. Nearly one-thousand research volunteers were invited to complete the survey, and 534 returned a completed survey. The valuable feedback provided by these research volunteers will help to improve research education and practices.
