Learn about your health, earn $20 and enjoy some M&Ms: Research participants needed

Submitted by Catherine Steele

The psychological sciences department is looking for participants, age 18-65, in Manhattan. Participants have the opportunity to learn about their health, earn $20 and enjoy some M&Ms.

This study involves:

  1. An online screening process.
  2. A 45-minute session where participants will complete a computerized choice task involving M&Ms.
  3. A 2.5-hour session where physiological measures will be taken — e.g. blood samples, body composition.

Participants who complete all three steps will be compensated with $20 in cash, a free DEXA scan and a small snack of mini-M&Ms during the session. Participants who do not meet the inclusion criteria following the online screening process will receive information about their health.

If you are interested in participating, see if you meet the inclusion criteria, get more information about the study, and begin the screening processing at kstate.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_6LSEUd5Fv4Z6ch7.

If you have any additional questions, contact Catherine Steele for more information at cchill1@k-state.edu

This study has been reviewed by the Institutional Review Board and received approval No. 9418.
