Government Contracting

“Outsourcing the focus group moderation to trained moderators allowed me to focus on managing the study and keeping everything moving. QHRC was a pleasure to work with and they went above and beyond to make sure that our focus group scripts were on target and that the focus groups stayed on task.”
