Today I continued calling for the BMI studies and called about 30 families. I was unable to schedule anyone and only talked to one parent in person. I left a lot of voice mails so hopefully we will have a bunch of call backs from those. I noticed that compared with yesterday, I talked to about twice as many parents as I did today. I think that is mainly due to the holiday and shows that our recruting success rate may depend on the time of day that we make the calls. I was also thinking that since we might be more successful leaving a message on the second round through the list because most parents I talk to on call backs seem irritated that we are contacting them again after leaving a message and not getting a response.
