Dear AoIR Colleagues,

Last week you received an email informing you of your selection  to participate in a study examining the use of information and communication technologies (ICTs) and how this relates to stress and health among employed  adults 19 and older. As such, your experiences with ICTs are important to us. Your experiences and ideas are vital to the success of this project.  If you have already completed our survey, thanks! If not, we ask that you please complete our survey in the next few days as the survey will be ending early next week.

Below is the link to the survey.  Spending approximately 15-20 minutes completing the survey will aid researchers in understanding how ICT use can impact health and stress among individuals who use them in their jobs. We ask that you complete the survey within the next 3 days. Your responses are confidential and none of your responses can be traced back to you. Your help in forwarding this email to your friends and acquaintances would be greatly appreciated. By doing this, you will enable us to reach more people which will help make this a better study.
