      This is the second study I've participated in and it's been a good experience. I just like helping the vaccine and research team, and if I can help future generations to come up with effective vaccines then I'm more than happy to do so.

      I'm involved because I really want to help other patients. When they asked me to participate I said, "Oh yeah, I'll help however I can." It's been an excellent experience. I've mostly just filled out surveys and have had some pleasant chats with researchers. I'm all about research that can make us feel better."

      I think it's interesting to learn about all of the research studies happening at the University of Iowa and I take pride in possibly advancing medical research. I also like to make a little bit of money. It's a pretty easy thing to do.

      I've lost my parents, aunts, and uncles to the same disease, so I decided it was time to find out what I could do to help. Research helps. And it gives you peace of mind.
