Volunteers needed for research studies


2 August 2012

Volunteers are being sought for two research studies: parents of 4-year-olds to examine the children's responses to sensations that are part of everyday life and a takeaway meals and drinks study.


Parents
Researchers are seeking parents of 4-year-olds to examine the children's responses to sensations that are part of everyday life.

The results from this study will assist with the development of a subsequent study to identify children who are over-reactive to everyday sensations. The study requires a very brief phone interview and 15 minutes to fill out three short questionnaires.

If you are interested in participating, please contact Simone Thomas on 0403 677 659 or Professor Anita Bundy on 9351 9857.

Takeaway meal and drink study
This study will investigate eating and drinking habits, with a focus on takeaway meals and drinks.

Anyone aged between 18 and 39, in any form of part-time or full-time paid employment, is eligible to participate.

Participation involves completing two food diaries and three online questionnaires about how much, where and what types of takeaway meals and drinks you consume, and other questions about your diet. The questionnaires will take about one and a half hours to complete in total, and you will be reimbursed for your time.

To enquire about participating, please contact Rochelle McCook with the email subject 'Study on Take-Away Meals And Drinks (SoTAMAD)', or call 9351 5010.
