The Vascular Birthmarks Foundation

Dr. Linda Rozell-Shannon, PhD President and Founder

Anna Kerr, PhD and Charee Thompson, PhD are researchers at Ohio University who are recruiting parents of children with a vascular birthmark to participate in an online survey describing memorable messages you have received from others (i.e., friends, family members, health care providers, strangers, etc.) about your child’s birthmark. You are eligible to participate if you are over the age of 18 and have received at least one message about your child’s birthmark that you remember vividly. To participate in the voluntary online survey, click on the link below. The link will take you to a website that describes what it means to consent to participate in a research study. Once you begin the survey, it should take approximately 15-20 minutes to complete.
