My research focuses on a pregnancy-related disorder known as HELLP Syndrome. It's part outreach, part research study. We provide information for the community through our Facebook page on current research and ongoing studies and also recruit women through the page (passively) to participate in our genetic susceptibility study. All of the research takes place through email or snail mail, so there is a lot of participant contact required, which the BUILD scholar could take possession of and really get creative with. There are opportunities to develop the page more fully and track usage, but that has not been explored.
