A new research study is being conducted by Kathleen Bogart, PhD, an Associate Professor of Psychology at Oregon State University.

She is seeking persons with any facial difference, including facial paralysis, to participate in an interview about when, or if, you inform others about your facial difference.

As a thank you for your participation, you will also receive a $15 Amazon gift card after the interview. For more information or to schedule an interview (either via phone or video call), please contact Dr. Kathleen Bogart via email at : kathleen.bogart@oregonstate.edu.

Dr. Bogart has been a long-time advocate for those with facial differences, and her research continues to encourage understanding and awareness for our condition. We hope you will participate in this study!
