Researchers at the University of New Brunswick are looking for youth to participate in a study about self-esteem in adolescents with chronic illness. Youth in grades 9-12 who have been diagnosed with asthma, arthritis or diabetes are eligible to participate! Participants will have a chance to win 1 of 10 $20 VISA Gift Cards, plus a chance to win the Grand Prize of an 8GB ipod Touch! Participation involves completing an anonymous, online survey that takes approximately 20-40 minutes. Questions are related to youth’s experience with their illness, self-esteem, depression, anxiety, autonomy, and perceptions of parent and peer relationships. Parents are required to consent to participation.
