Living with hypothyroidism? This MIT student team would love to hear your story over a 20-minute chat, and you’ll receive a $5 Amazon gift card as a small thank you.
THIS POST HAS BEEN SPONSORED BY THE AUTHOR (MIT STudent Team).
Alisia Pajevic and Rob Whiting are students and entrepreneurs at MIT, and we are interested in speaking with hypothyroid patients to hear your stories about challenges and pain points experienced through your journey from diagnosis to ongoing treatment.
We’ve seen our family members and friends struggle with hypothyroidism and we want to help create a more patient-centred product or service to serve hypothyroid patients.
We have come to find out that many often do not get sufficient information from their doctors and as we research the topic, are trying to chat with hypothyroid patients to hear their stories, so that we can create a patient-centred solution that solves real problems for patients.
All information will be treated as confidential, and the call will be limited to just 20 minutes. Also, as a small thank you, we will send you a $5 Amazon gift card immediately following the call. We are seeking to speak with US-based patients only at this time.
If you would like to submit a guest post, whether you’re a thyroid patient, doctor or anyone else, please get in contact.
