'Reducing Social Vulnerability for Extreme-Heat Events in Older Adults' research project is looking for participants. Please share the information about the current survey in your network and help us recruit 300 participants who are 60 years of age or older. The study involves completing a brief questionnaire either online, in person, or over the phone. The questionnaire should take less than 30 minutes to complete. Participants will receive a $10 gift card for Tim Hortons to compensate for time and any participation expenses.
