Request to Participate in an Employment Study

We want to hear from you! The Rehabilitation and Research Training Center (RRTC) at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) is conducting a study to determine if people with physical disabilities can gain needed information on employment by participating in a Facebook Group on Employment. The study will last for six months. However, individuals can spend as much or as little time as they choose interacting in the Facebook group or reviewing the materials disseminated through a monthly Email. You may be employed or unemployed. You must be at least 18 years of age and able to provide legal consent to participate. You also must have a physical disability such as cerebral palsy, spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis, or other physical disability.
