The Sister Study is on Facebook!
Join our private Facebook group for the latest study news, findings and group sharing experience.
We are excited to let you know that we have created a private Facebook group for the Sister Study to provide a forum for Sister Study participants, colleagues and friends of the study. This private group is by invitation only and not a public forum. We saw the need to have a more dynamic way of communicating with our Sister Study community than just the Sister Study website. We see the Facebook group as a real-time forum where we can post study updates, announcements, and new research findings or plans.
We know that Facebook has been in the news lately because of how they use their users’ data. We want you to know that, as a research study funded by a government entity, we will abide by all NIEHS privacy policies. We will not share your information with third parties. We ourselves will never post any personal and/or identifiable information on Facebook. If you decide to use your own real name, be mindful that you are responsible for that information. We will provide guidelines for what not to post, such as personal health information, treatment recommendations, and product endorsements or posts with an intent to sell. Our staff will monitor the group to make sure that policies are followed and remove inappropriate material.
We invite you to follow this direct link https://www.facebook.com/groups/niehssisterstudy/ if you would like to join.
We hope you find this additional communication method helpful and that you enjoy connecting with other study participants, colleagues and friends of the study.
