In order to find out whether you are a good fit with our study, we ask you to please fill out the online screening survey available here. Completing the survey could be followed by a 30-45 minute in-person screening session. Not everyone who comes to the screening will be eligible for the study. Information from your screening questionnaires will be permanently unlinked from your identify after eligibility has been determined.
