Eligible participants will be asked to complete an introductory survey and 4 follow-up surveys . If eligible you'll receive a $10 gift card redeemable at Amazon.com for the completion of each survey, for a total of $50 if you complete the entire study. Compensation would be mailed to your address.

To participate you must reside in the U.S., have a valid mailing address (no P.O. boxes permitted), and a working phone number at which you can be reached.
