Get involved with our work
Become a Patient Education Field Tester.
Are you interested in helping RHAP improve our patient education resources? RHAP is looking for field testers! The role we expect from field testers is to make sure the translations we provide 1) accurately convey information in a way that is easy to understand and culturally appropriate, and 2) reflect RHAP’s values of evidence-based practice, intersectionality, patient-centeredness, and purposeful inclusion. We are looking for field testers with fluency in reading and writing Arabic, Chinese Simplified/Traditional, French, Hindi, Spanish, Vietnamese, or any other language. Field Testers receive a $100 honorarium for each resource they help to field test. If you are interested in helping RHAP field test some of our resources, please reach out to email@example.com.
