Curtis Analytic Partners, Inc, (CAP) a global marketing research and consulting company located in Philadelphia, PA, is conducting a study on the topic of infantile hemangioma (IH). We are interested in speaking with parents/caregivers of children who have been diagnosed with infantile hemangioma (IH).

Please contact Angela Glass at 1.800.836.1684, ext 100 or 215.248.1197, ext 100 (Monday-Friday 9:30am-5:30pm). At that time, we will ask you a few questions to see if you qualify for our study.

The goal for this research study is to interview twenty (20) parents/caregivers: Four (4) small groups would be conducted in-person (4 participants in each group for a total of 16) and four (4) individual phone interviews.

The four in-person small group meetings (requiring 4 persons per group) will be held in two cities (Philadelphia and Iselin/or Fort Lee, NJ) and would take place the week of February 10th (final dates TBD). Those meetings will last approximately 1 hour & 30 minutes. If you reside within close proximity to these locations, please contact us immediately to reserve your spot.

The four individual phone discussions will last approximately 55 minutes and will be scheduled at your convenience beginning February 17-February 28, 2014.

Both in-person and telephone discussions will be completely confidential, no names or phone numbers will be distributed to any outside parties, and no drug or product sales will occur. All discussions will be led by a CAP Senior Researcher who is sensitive to and knowledgeable about infantile hemangioma (IH).

Small group participants will each receive a ‘thank you’ gift card in the amount of $125 and phone participants will receive a ‘thank you’ gift card in the amount of $75 for their valuable feedback.
