My name is Grzegorz, I am a third year student of Tourism and Hospitality at: „Warsaw School of Tourism and Hospitality Management”. Currently I am writing my Bachelor thesis and I am looking for respondents for a questionnaire. So far I have been gathering answers only in my country (Poland) and willing to have as many of them as possible, I decided to look for foreign participants as well. The primary aim of the study is to find connections between nutritional status of individuals with spinal injuries (in particular meaning those with spinal cord injuries) and their health status. The questionnaire is anonymous. It mostly consists of closed-ended questions, with either one answer or multiple choice (all of open-ended answers are optional) and it should take around 10 minutes to complete. The only requirement to participate is being 18+ years old who experienced a spinal injury.
At the moment I don't have anything to offer in return for filling the questionnaire, but soon, after my thesis is completed, I may translate the abstract of it into English, present it right here and thus possibly help someone improve their diet and nutritional status. Many thanks for your help and sorry for possible mistakes, my English may be not perfect.
In case of any questions, contact me: firstname.lastname@example.org

student, wish you well on your thesis. Would enjoy seeing the results. While filling out your questionnaire it dawned on me how little they mentioned diet after my operation. I think I was given a standard pamphlet.
Yes, nutrition is often underestimated at any treatment. While according to my current research, bad nutrition may even involve irreversible harm in case of some complications, like metabolic abnormalities, osteoporosis and pressure ulcers. I hope one day dietetics will be given some more attention as a significant contributor to medical treatment.
Thanks a lot for your support, kilg0retr0ut , DJ ,! I am looking forward to more respondents, every single questionnaire filled makes the study better
