Participate in a Research Study!
- Jul. 6, 2012
This study involves three (3) visits. The first visit will take place within one (1) week of departure for your vacation and will last approximately 20 minutes. Visit 2 will take place within one (1) week of you returning from vacation and visit 3 will be five (5) weeks after visit 2. Each follow-up visit will also last approximately 20 minutes. You will not be able to eat or drink (including caffeine) for four (4) hours before each visit and will need to avoid moderate to vigorous exercise for 12 hours prior to each visit.
During each visit, we will measure your height, weight and waist to hip ratio. Additionally, we will measure your body composition with a safe, non-invasive method called bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) and will take your blood pressure while you are in a seated position. Finally, we will ask you questions regarding your nutrition and exercise habits.
Your participation in this study will be strictly voluntary and greatly appreciated. You may refuse or cease your participation at any time during the study. If you are interested in participating and would like to see if you qualify for the study, please contact Theresa Tokar in the Department of Nutrition, Hospitality, and Retailing via email at email@example.com.
Thank you for your interest!
