Tuskegee University conducting Hear Our Voices Study in Black Belt

Tuskegee University is conducting a study on health and society issues affecting the Black Belt Region.

Tuskegee University is conducting a Hear Our Voices Study. Kelsea Williams, who’s working with the University, said the goal is to fix the issues in the community.

“The purpose of this study is to obtain feedback on issues in your community and in society that impact your health,” Williams said. “The purpose is to also gain input on the policies and procedures that you feel will improve health outcomes in your area.”

Tuskegee University operates the Tuskegee Center for Rural Health and Disparities Black Belt Digital Network. The Black Belt Digital Network is a mobile notification network that sends health alerts to residents’ mobile phones. Alerts will include the latest research on healthy lifestyle practices, location data for farmers selling fresh food, and location data for health services. The app is free and can be downloaded via the participant’s mobile app store.

Individuals who volunteer to participate in this research study created by the Center for Rural Health and Economic Disparities will be asked to complete a 25-30 minute interview and survey. The survey information you provide will be completely confidential. Surveys will be sent via email link. The interview portion of the study will take place on Zoom or telephone. Participation in both the survey and interview component of the study is optional.

Anyone interested must complete the Google form: https://forms.gle/RiVPNWYLXSWn4H2g7

Individuals who don’t have the access to complete the Google form can contact Kelsea Williams at (205) 319-1353.
