Learn about Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency, earn $5 starbucks giftcard

Posted about 4 years ago by Mary S. Johnson


We are conducting a study to determine if a short video can teach providers about Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency. As you may know, it takes an average of 8 years and 4-5 physicians before the diagnosis of Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency (AATD) is usually made. This despite testing being free in many States, including Florida and WHO and ATS recommendations to screen anyone with COPD or Chronic Liver disease for AATD. My hope is this study will increase testing so we can identify people earlier and they can live healthier, longer lives.

The study is all online and consists of a baseline test with 8 questions, a video less than 2 minutes, and the same post-test 8 questions, it can be completed in about 5 minutes and is all online at this link:

This project is funded by the College of Medicine Chapman Education Center.

The study is IRB approved through IRB-02.
