Volunteers are needed for an online research study on the impact of facial paralysis on speech and oral communication. To date, there has been little research that measures the effect of facial paralysis or facial weakness on how well people verbally communicate. This ten-minute, anonymous online survey will help doctors and researchers understand more about the connection between facial paralysis and verbal communication.

Please follow the link at: redcap.sc-ctsi.org/surveys/?s=7M9CN87AHL to find out more and participate in the study.

This study is being conducted by Dr. Jon-Paul Pepper, a surgeon-scientist who specializes in the treatment of facial paralysis. He is the Director of the Facial Nerve Center at the University of Southern California.

Thanks for all our followers for participating in these vital research projects!
