A Study to Evaluate Reactions to Stories About Health Issues

Official Title: Reactions to Health Narratives


We are conducting this study to learn more about how people react to an entertainment story about a health issue. We want to learn how a viewer’s emotional reactions to an episode of a television show impact their thoughts and attitudes towards a health topic.

This study has two parts. In the first part, you will be asked to watch an episode of a television program and then answer some questions about your reactions. This should take approximately 75 minutes. The first part needs to be taken at a pre-scheduled time due to the design of the study. One week after your participation in the second part, you will be sent a link to complete a short 15-minute follow up survey.

Participating in both parts will take no longer than 90 minutes. Part 1 will take 75 minutes and part 2 will take 15 minutes.

Eligibility criteria:

You may be eligible for this study if you are:
•You are a woman between the ages of 18-29
•Do not watch The Bold Type television show
•Your first language is English or you are very fluent in English
