The Gallagher Initiative: You are invited!

You are invited to participate in the first survey of Irish Americans in New York City
The purpose of this survey, called “The Gallagher Initiative”, is to learn about how aging Irish Americans are coping.  We want to learn about what health services, social services, or other services are needed and wanted.  We are especially interested in talking with older adults who are living alone or are isolated. The survey is being conducted by professors from Hunter College and Fordham University under the auspice of the Fund for the Advancement of Social Services.  If you volunteer to participate in this survey, you will be interviewed by a trained interviewer at a time and location that you choose.  The interview will be private and confidential.
You may participate in the survey if: • You or your parents or any of your grandparents were born in Ireland • You live in New York City • You are age 55 years or older
Whether you are in excellent health or poor health, working or retired, have recently immigrated or are second generation, we hope you will considering participating in the survey.
Participants will receive a FREE tote bag and resource pamphlets upon completion of the interview.
