Seeking Focus Group Participants: Provide Your Feedback on a TMD/TMJ Brochure

The National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), is conducting virtual (online and/or by telephone) focus groups to get feedback on its TMJ Disorders brochure, which is being updated. NIDCR wants to speak with individuals diagnosed with TMJ/TMD -- by a healthcare professional—in the last 5 years, and is especially interested in hearing from TMJ Association members.

Focus groups will occur June 22, 2020 through July 10, 2020. Each discussion will last approximately 60 minutes. All who participate will receive a token of appreciation. 

We want to hear from you! If you are interested, please contact Cynthia Cross at hagenc@hagensinclair.com by June 22, 2020. (Note: Not all who express interest will be able to participate as NIDCR is aiming to speak with individuals representing a variety of backgrounds.)
