Mason Students: Tell Us What You Think About Mason Offering STD Self-Testing Kits

STD Testing Kit Survey Image

Our Department of Global and Community Health is conducting an online survey of current Mason students (BOTH graduate and undergraduate students aged 18 years and older) to examine their perceptions of and willingness to use sexually transmitted disease (STD) self-testing services if offered on campus.  The survey has received IRB approval and will take students approximately 10 minutes to complete online (they can complete it on a computer, tablet, or smartphone).  In order to get accurate results, we need as many Mason students to complete the survey as possible.  

Mason undergraduate and graduate students can take the survey here

If you have any questions or concerns about the survey please contact Dr. Lisa Lindley, the Principal Investigator, at or the Office of Research Development, Integrity and Assurance at
