Dr. Natasha Crooks is conducting research that focuses on protecting Black girls. The purpose of this study is to create a validated measure (survey) to learn more about how their bodies develop and how to keep them safe. We are hoping to use this information to be utilized by nurses, school counselors, or in spaces that support Black girls' development in hopes to assess their level of protection and tailor programming to their needs. We are requesting Black girls between the ages of 9-18 to complete the survey. Participants will receive a $15 Amazon gift card for completing the survey!

Black Girl Magic Study

The EMPOW-HER Project is for a health study for RTI International aimed to help African American women in the Southeast. It will take less than 5 minutes to find out if you might be eligible to take part in this study. You will be asked a few questions, including some on race and gender, and other information about your practice and sexual reproductive health (SRH) services. Your answers will be kept private and strictly confidential and you will not need to provide your name unless you later decide to be involved in the study.

We are looking to see how to help make viral load monitoring for people living with HIV more accessible and something they can do within the comfort of their home.
The project is open to people of any HIV status
Your participation in the study would include coming to two in-person study visits, at our clinic in Decatur, where a phlebotomist will draw your blood. At each visit we would also provide you with a self-collection kit that you can use to collect your own blood in a private room in our clinic or in your own home.
These visits would be scheduled approximately two weeks apart from one another, and you would receive $50 for each sample that you provide. So, if you completed all four parts, the two blood draws and the two self-collections, you would receive $200.
