    passing this on to you:


    Dear Sir or Madame,

    My name is Diane Collins, and I am a disabled, pre-doctoral fellow from
    the
    VA Pittsburgh Healthcare System. We are conducting a study on the
    "Functional, Psychological, and Economic Benefits of Service Dog
    Partnership." The inclusion criteria for the study is that an interested
    person must be 18 years of age or older, and use a wheelchair or scooter
    as
    his or her primary means of mobility. I have 160 individuals enrolled in
    the
    study so far, but need more individuals in the control group, which is
    made
    up of individuals who use wheelchairs or scooters, and do not have
    service
    dogs.

    The study is a one-time survey that takes about one hour to complete.
    The
    survey and consents are mailed to interested persons. The surveys can be
    completed and then mailed to me, or I can interview interested people
    over
    the phone. Participants are reimbursed $20.00 for their time in
    completing
    the survey. We have a website that explains the study. That address is:
    http://www.herlpitt.org/acs.htm. If you can help spread the word about
    our
    study, we would sincerely appreciate it. My email address is:
    dmcst84@pitt.edu, and my direct phone number is 412-365-4844.

    Thanks very much,

    Diane
