Seeking participants for a master's thesis project

Recommended Posts

I'm a recently-diagnosed celiac patient. I also have dairy allergies, Crohn's disease and a colorful array of other autoimmune issues. My dietary requirements (as many of you have also experienced) has forced me to be extremely diligent about the food I eat, eating out, eating with friends, etc.

I'm also working as a teacher and attending college for my master's degree in special education. In school, I see students with allergies isolated out of concern for student safety. On class trips, my dietary needs are downplayed as insignificant. ("Oh, she'll just get an upset stomach if she eats contaminated food") I'm willing to bet that many of you have experienced this, too.

I would like to change the way our students are treated and isolated because they have special dietary requirements, so I'm writing my master's thesis about the impact of social isolation on students with food intolerance, sensitivities and allergies. 

Please contact me if you would like to participate in my research. I will be very grateful and will be happy to send you a copy of my thesis and the results of the study when it is completed.

Thank you for your time.

Have read your post with interest. If you look on my profile you will see that like you I have celiac disease and a large number of food intolerances which I am sure are just treated as "fads" when I venture to eat out.

Am willing to assist - live in Scottish Borders don't know if that is an issue though!

I assume you are wanting responses from

1. people who have school age children? 

Or

2. people who are students themselves in some kind of school situation?

There is a section of the forum for parents of children with celiac disease.  You might find some threads there that would help.

Thank you, gluten-free in DC! Unfortunately, because my research is for my thesis, I have to have actual participants who are willing to answer direct/specific questions related to my study. Otherwise I would pull information from that thread. I'm also limited to working with people who are 18 and older, who are willing to talk about their own personal experiences. Please urge anyone you know who might be willing to participate to contact me.  Thank you!

I think you might get a better response if you published your University, Department, etc. so that others can verify that this is a legitimate request.  I am sure your department chair can help guide you, so that your own personal identity is secure.  

Personally, as a person who conducted marketing research for a living as well as being currently on a University campus, I think your approach is way off.  Not to mention that there is a reason members like celiac.com.  They can be anonymous!

I agree.  I only particiapte in the surveys that I can verify are legit.  I would think that this person could talk to the parents of actual kids at a local school or go thru Children's hospitals as part of thier research.  This must just be in ther early planning stages of a thesis - to show his/her advisor how he will get subjects?

You might want to go to your closest celiac support group (check with local hospitals for ease in locating one or two) and ask to interview individuals there. Interviewing teachers and school kitchen staff might also be helpful. You will learn much more in a face to face interview and your participants will feel safer.
