Help St. Croix Student Research Project

A St. Croix high school junior is performing a research project for school and could use your help if you have the time to fill out a short survey. Here is her plea in its entirety:

Dear Past and Present Residents of St. Croix:

I am Keturah Nurse, a junior (at a local high school). This year, students in upper school are required to do a research project of their choice. The project will be part of our annual science fair. I have decided to do my research on the air pollutants that were given off by Hovensa over the past 5 to 10 years and any possible connections to the cancer incidences on St. Croix, with particular emphasis on the residents that live west of the refinery. I have created a survey to aid my research and need your help. I would greatly appreciate your participation by going to the enclosed links and filling out the surveys.

There are two parts so I kindly ask that you click on both links and fill out both parts. I also ask that you share this two-part survey with any family or friends who live or have lived on island. Your participation and cooperation in helping me with my project will be greatly appreciated.
