Research Study on racial microaggressions

compensation provided

Conducted Remotely

Study Background

Some individuals are disproportionally exposed to stressors, such as racial discrimination, that increase risk for substance use. Additionally, minoritized groups report experiencing everyday race-related discriminatory events involving intentional acts of racism or subtle degrading, excluding, or negating acts, known as racial microaggressions, as frequently as daily. 

Although the link between racial discrimination and substance use has been documented, there’s still much to learn. Participants in this study will be asked to test and provide feedback on an assessment app created by researchers.

Additional Information

We aim to learn more about race-related experiences among young adults. We would also love your feedback on a digital tool to support other young adults in the future.

If you decide to participate in this research survey, you will complete a screening form to determine your eligibility. Those eligible will be sent a link to an online consent form, and if they consent they will be routed directly to complete a survey. We will then reach out within 3-6 months to let participants know whether or not they have been selected to take part in usability testing/feedback interviews for the EMA app. There is no intervention/support provided in this study.

Compensation is provided up to $25 for completing all components of the study.

There is no cost for you to participate in the study.
