Distrust is among the most pervasive and difficult barriers to quick and appropriate health care, and it is perhaps the most difficult barrier to break down. The University of Pennsylvania Research Group on Health Care Disparities is dedicated to eradicating this barrier to care. But distrust cannot be eradicate until we understand which clinical approaches foster distrust.
Between June and September, we are asking Philadelphians to lend their insight to our work to break down this barrier to important, lifesaving health care.
We are conducting 1 ½ to 2-hour focus groups to be held at convenient locations across the city of Philadelphia. We offer day, evening, and weekend groups. Besides having the opportunity to take part in an interesting and worthwhile discussion, participants will also receive a gift of $30 and free refreshments as a thank you for their time and participation. Groups and interviews will be conducted in Spanish or English, according to your preference.
