Congratulations to the winners!

Once a year, the MAVIPAN team conducts a random draw among participants who have completed at least one questionnaire during the year. We would like to congratulate this year’s ten winners, who will each receive a $50 VISA gift card!

These cards can be used for online or in-store purchases at businesses that accept VISA credit cards.

On behalf of the entire team, we thank you for your participation in the MAVIPAN project!
