Once the survey is completed, individuals will have a chance to be entered in a drawing and win a $100 Amazon gift card or one of several $20 Starbucks cards.

All responses to the survey will be held in confidence. No identifying links between responses and the individual responding will be retained. Combined data only will be reported.
