Do You Search the Internet for Health Information?

Researchers at Stanford University and Johns Hopkins University are studying different ways that people use the Internet to find health information. We are seeking people from the Bay Area to participate in a computer-based experiment to help us understand how people find online information about health issues.

Online Health Study logo To be eligible, you must be:

  • Comfortable using the Internet on your own (preferably on a PC)
  • Age of 35 years or older
  • Comfortable reading and using the Internet in English
  • Willing to travel to Stanford for a 2.5 hour Internet-use experiment

Eligible participants will be asked to complete study questionnaires at home, and complete several online health searches and more questionnaires in our laboratory at the Stanford Prevention Research Center. Participants will be compensated with a $35 Visa gift card for completion of the study.

If you are interested in participating, complete our online screening form.
