Your survey responses will give you access to electronic tools (e-tools) developed for modifiable behaviors. You will be able to refer to these e-tools at any time throughout the duration of the research study.

You will complete a short Satisfaction Survey after 1 week, and a Follow-up Survey at the end of the 3-month period.
