Through the Department of Public Health, Substance Abuse and Prevention Control division, The Wall-Las Memorias Project (TWLMP) is doing is conducting a study on the accessibility, availably and social norms of alcohol and other substance abuse in Southeast Los Angeles which includes the cities of Huntington Park, Bell Gardens, South Gate, Maywood, Bell, and Cudahy.
In an effort to gather comprehensive data TWLMP will be conducting focus groups for young adults, ages 18-24 who are LGBTQ. Would it be possible to open up an invitation to any community groups/members that you may know in your community whether they be 18 year olds who are in high school or 18-24 year olds who are in college or working?
In appreciation of participants time a $20 gift card to Target will be given to each participant, light snacks and refreshments will be provided as well. The focus group will be recorded (with participant consent) and notes will be taken to make sure we capture the most accurate information. We will conduct the focus group at a convenient location in the community unless you have a location in mind that we can utilize.
I appreciate your time and hope to hear from you soon.
