Research Study Seeks Participants Who Know Someone with Intellectual Disability
A new Syracuse University research study conducted through the Falk College’s Department of Public Health, Food Studies and Nutrition is currently seeking participants who have a family member or friend with an intellectual disability. The study is funded by the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development.
Participants are needed for group interviews to share their opinions on how adults with intellectual disability should be treated when participating in research. Topics to be covered include how adults with intellectual disabilities find out about and make decisions related to research studies and an exploration of the good and bad things that can happen from research participation. The group interviews will be at Syracuse University and will last approximately two hours. Individuals will receive $40 and transportation costs for their participation. For more information, and to sign up to participate, call 315-443–5981 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
