Participants for a youth wellness program research study needed

By Ric Rosenkranz

Attention parents of girls in the third to seventh grades:

  • Are you interested in helping your daughter to improve her eating or exercise habits?
  • Does your daughter have concerns about body image or self-esteem?
  • Has your daughter been picked on because of her size or weight?
  • Could your daughter benefit from setting health-related goals and working with a a big-sister-type role model?

If any of these apply, she may be eligible for a special program led by K-State researchers. Sara Rosenkranz, assistant professor of human nutrition; David Dzewaltowski, professor of kinesiology; and Richard Rosenkranz, associate professor of human nutrition, are currently recruiting female children, ages 8 to 13, for a wellness study of the comparative effectiveness of two home-based coaching intervention programs through a randomized controlled trial.

Please email Richard Rosenkranz at ricardo@k-state.edu for more information about the Wildcat Wellness Coaching Trial: Kansas State University IRB Project Approval #6296.
