We are proud to be working with more than 50 community and professional groups across the Gulf in order to spread the word about the GuLF STUDY.
There are two programs you or your organization can get involved with to show your support for the study.
The GuLF STUDY Ambassador Program seeks to enlist community leaders from across the Gulf region to serve as Ambassadors who volunteer to inform the public about the importance of the GuLF STUDY and why the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) is taking a closer look at the health of cleanup workers and volunteers, since the Deepwater Horizon Gulf Oil Spill.
GuLF STUDY Ambassadors are needed to spread the word in their communities by distributing study materials at meetings and through their social and professional networks. To learn more about how to become a GuLF STUDY Ambassador, please contact us by e-mail
With your help, we will be able to recruit more participants into the GuLF STUDY to learn about the potential health effects of the oil spill on cleanup workers and volunteers.
The more we can get the GuLF STUDY message out into the community, the better. If the media is interested in speaking to an Ambassador in a particular community, we may contact you to participate in the interview. We will work with all Ambassadors to determine availability and times for interviews, as well as answer any questions you may have before participating in an interview. If you are contacted by the media to participate in an interview, please contact Todd Ragusa immediately by e-mail or 504.949.3999 ext. 207, to ensure we track all media requests for the GuLF STUDY.
Community Supporter Program
Community Supporters will receive the same information as Ambassadors via email updates and will not be asked to endorse the study in an official capacity. We ask that Community Supporters point people in the direction of the GuLF STUDY website and provide them with accurate information about the study when the opportunity arises.
To sign-up as a Community Supporter, please contact us by e-mail.
What better way to encourage others to participate than telling them you’ve done it yourself? If you or someone you know is a potential GuLF STUDY participant and are comfortable sharing your story, please let us know by e-mail.
Our goal is to make people aware of the GuLF STUDY, and we want to know how we can improve. If you have suggestions, please send them to us by e-mail.
