Advertisement/Recruitment Material

Any document which is to be used as an advertisement or recruitment tool must be reviewed and approved by the IRB prior to use. These materials include (but are not limited to) flyers, media (Newspaper, Radio, TV) advertisements, press releases, Internet advertisements and brochures. The IRB must review the draft copy and final advertisement (including actual newspaper layout, tape for radio and video for TV). Advertising materials must be submitted with the initial study application or as an amendment thereto. Please contact the IRB office if you have questions concerning what must be included in the advertisement and specific items which cannot be included in advertisements.
