Volunteers needed for an infant formula study

Submitted by Ana Gonzalez

Mothers or caregivers of infants between 0-12 months are needed to participate in a study about how to prepare infant formula.

To participate in the study, mothers should be over 18 years of age, and their babies should be on formula feed at least half the time — for example, half of the time breastfeeding and the other half formula feeding; or only with formula feeding. In addition, mothers should be willing to come for an in-person visit of approximately 30 minutes.

The study location is at the Physical Activity and Nutrition Clinical Research Consortium on the third floor of K-State's Lafene Health Center. Participants will see where many of Manhattan's babies used to be born. Participants will receive either a gift card or baby formula — worth approximately $30 — for their participation.

For more information or to schedule an appointment, please contact Ana Gonzalez Alvarez at 785-320-3860 or email anadanielaga@k-state.edu

This study was approved by the Committee on Research Involving Human Subjects from Kansas State University and received IRB approval No. 11215. View the flyer
