Connecting with Women ASPIRE
Our goal for the Women ASPIRE study is to conduct rigorous scientific research to understand the gendered physical and mental health concerns of Syrian refugee women living in Jordan. Find below some links from our in-country principal investigator - Dr. Maysa’ Khadra, faculty at the University of Jordan School of Medicine - and our Research Assistants for the study. This videos are from July 2017 after our team worked together to conduct a training for the medical students. We trained the students in study procedures, ethical conduct of research, interviewing technique, and the overall refugee and migration crisis as a result of the Syrian conflict. The students practiced giving the survey to each other on the tablets, and the group worked together to provide feedback on cultural adaptation of the survey. Thaddeus DeCaprio took video clips (below) of the students talking about why they are invested in working on Women ASPIRE.
