Dear Flight Attendants,
Several weeks ago you may have received an email from researchers at Harvard asking you to join a new Flight Attendant health study. Your AFA Alaska Master Executive Council (MEC) also sent out a communication (MEC Update December 4, 2013: Harvard Flight Attendant Health Study) advising you of the health study. For those of you who participated, your MEC and the Harvard researchers thank you for donating your valuable time.
For those of you who haven’t participated yet, there is still time. Your participation is key. Knowledge about the health effects of our profession is lacking and only you can change that. You’ve read the recent news articles. You’ve talked to your colleagues about your health on the job. Now let’s make it count by telling the folks who are equipped to study what’s going on.
Any former and current Flight Attendants can participate by following this link: https://harvard.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_4O5cAMbgQV1B4Cp. Be assured all responses will be kept confidential!
Want to know more about the study? Then follow this link: http://www.fahealth.org/116/. Tell your coworkers and all current or former Flight Attendant friends about the study (www.fahealth.org). Thank you very much for advancing knowledge about the health effects of our profession!
Your MEC – Jeffrey Peterson, Terry Taylor, Yvette Gesch, Melanie Buker, Laura Masserant, Cathy Gwynn and Sandra Morrow
