Hiv Positive Gay Man Needs Help Reaching His Goal Of Becoming A Doctor

Hello my name is Adam Kessinger and I am a Clinical Psychology PhD candidate focusing on gay men's health. I am currently conducting a research study focusing on relationship satisfaction and positive growth after receiving an HIV/AIDS diagnosis in a population of gay men. I have encountered some difficulties gathering the large sample size I need and would like to advertise my study and include the link to the on-line survey for those who can help. I would so appreciate for you to take 20 min of your time to help me complete the final step in my goal of becoming a doctor. I am an HIV positive gay man myself and have been since the age of 16. I have encountered many difficulties on my journey to where I am now, including stage IV non-Hodgkin's lymphoma that I am thankfully now in remission from. Along the way romantic and intimate relationships that I have formed served as a source of support, coping, joy, and happiness and I am curious to know how your intimate relationships have impacted you since your HIV/AIDS diagnosis. Please help me reach my goal and complete the questionnaire accessible to the link below. One person will be randomly selected to receive a $100 Visa gift card upon completion of my study and you can also request study results. Stipulations for completing the survey are that you are a gay man diagnosed with HIV/AIDS that is in a intimate relationship for at least 3 months (whether dating, boyfriends, domestic partners, married, or open) and over the age of 18. With the greatest appreciation, Adam!
