We are recruiting volunteer "shoppers" to participate in a special project coordinated by the Maternal Child and Adolescent Health (MCAH) Bureau. We are seeking Spanish speaking women who can pass as 16 to 24 year old women seeking emergency contraception, pregnancy test services, or prenatal care services over the phone.
Volunteer "shoppers" will:
- Contact their assigned clinic site(s) using the script of a specific English or Spanish-speaking persona; and
- Fill out an online post-call evaluation survey.
Phone calls and surveys can be done remotely over several weeks in November & December 2016. Volunteers are assigned 10 or less clinics to contact.
1-hour orientation which can be conducted either in person or via phone. All materials will be sent via email if conducted via phone conference.
8 hours (which includes the 1-hour orientation training)
This is strictly a volunteer opportunity. However, volunteers who contribute significantly to the project will be listed as contributors (or possibly co-authors) for any research poster or publication abstracts in the future. This is a great opportunity for students applying to college or graduate school (i.e. MD/DO, PA, NP, RN MSN, MPH, etc).
