Researchers at the University of Alberta are conducting a survey of middle-aged women.

The survey looks to explore current methods of managing midlife women’s health symptoms (example: hormone changes, sleep, mood, hot flashes, etc).

You will have a chance to directly contribute to the growing body of knowledge and inform healthcare providers in areas such as medical-cannabis use.

All survey participants are also going to be given the chance to receive 1 of 4 $50 Amazon gift cards. There will be an opportunity to participate in future research as well!
