Families Needed for Nutrition Intervention Study
The Department of Food Science at the University of Arkansas is recruiting families (defined as at least one parent/guardian) with at least one child between the ages of 6-12 years to participate in a nutrition study. Compensation will be provided. Families will receive all supplies and a monthly grocery stipend.
In addition, no family members can have food allergies or food intolerances. The study involves 6 visits to the University of Arkansas and the Food Science Department over a 12-14 week period and measurements of the following: height, weight, waist-to-hip ratio, blood collection via intravenous puncture; and 24-hour food intake records. The study may also require DXA for body composition for the child. Families will be required to complete the study in full in order to receive compensation.
For more information, please contact the Baum Lab at firstname.lastname@example.org or (573) 619-1912 to schedule a phone screening.
