They are interested in connecting with women with physical disabilities living in Lyon County. We are helping spread the word to women in our community!

The researchers want to hear from you and get your opinion about important areas of your health as a woman. They will travel to Emporia, Kansas to host a focus group of 8 to 10 women. Women in this study will receive $25 as a thanks for their time.
