Diabetes prevention project needs participants

Penn State researchers are now actively recruiting adults to participate in online focus groups related to the prevention of Type II diabetes. Compensation of $25 will be provided for those that volunteer.

The online focus group will last around an hour and a half and include questions regarding participants’ own engagements with physical activity, diet, social connection, stress reduction, and wearable technology to improve health. Researchers will specifically ask for personal perspectives and experiences on such topics.

The goal of these focus groups is to assist researchers in designing motivational text messages that increase physical activity to prevent Type II diabetes. If you are interested in participating, please email dsc15@psu.edu or call (800) 646-3617.
