Survey on Black Women and Body Image
Are you a Black woman in your 20's, who is or has attended a predominately White academic institution?
If so, you are eligible to complete a survey on Black women and body image and be entered into a drawing to receive one of many $50.00 gift cards to Target.
This research initiative and dissertation data collection is being conducted by Desiré Taylor, a counseling psychology doctoral student at the University of Texas at Austin. African American women are an understudied bunch and very hard to recruit. The study takes about 30 minutes to thoughtfully complete and your feedback could make a huge impact on what we know about Black women and their relationships to their bodies.
