Women's Health Access Project

Are you a woman living in the United States?
Are you at least 18 years old?
Would you like to help in the effort to improve health care access?

We want to hear from you!

Melissa Howell*, a graduate student in the Department of Sociology at Loyola University Chicago is conducting The Women╩╝s Health Access Project (WHAP), a survey to gather information about what you think about your health, health care access, and how you make health care decisions. The more women who participate, the more information policymakers will have, so we hope you can help!

To complete an anonymous online questionnaire and join your voice with many others, please follow this link:

Spread the word! If you would like to invite other women to participate, please forward or post this message in its entirety.

If you have any questions, please contact the researcher, Melissa Howell, at Loyola University Chicago ( or her faculty advisor, Dr. Anne Figert at or (773) 508-3431.

* Melissa is a personal acquaintance, so I'd take it as a special favor if you would please take the survey ... and ask a couple of your friends to do the same, or post it on your blog. The survey really is quite brief -- it took me less than 5 minutes to ponder each question & answer it!
