MyPaTH Story Booth


STUDY BASICS

Researchers are looking for volunteers to share a personal story about their experience as an individual facing a health problem or accessing the health system. Individuals could also share their experience as a caregiver for someone who is ill.


STUDY PURPOSE

The “PaTH” network is a collaboration between the University of Pittsburgh, UPMC, and multiple other top tier research institutions. The MyPaTH Story Booth allows patients and caregivers to record a conversation to share with researchers so they can better understand peoples’ experiences with health and illness.
