Participate in Health Anxiety Research by Taking this Survey

I came across this request from a psychology student asking people with health anxiety to fill out this survey for a study she's doing. I am glad to see that there is research being done.
You are invited to participate in a study about Health Anxiety and Cognitive Processes in a Community Sample (Protocol Number H7880).

Who is conducting this study?
Researchers from the University of Western Sydney, listed below.

Background to the study
Health anxiety is anxiety about your health and includes the way you think, feel and behave. It can range from mild to severe. Everybody can be anxious about their health from time to time, but when someone worries about their health continuously it can get in the way of everyday life. This study is aiming to learn more about how people who are health anxious think. This will help to understand how to conceptualise health anxiety better, which may help to work out better ways of providing support and assistance.
