Dear Members of the Syracuse University Community: Like all of you, my colleagues on the Board of Trustees and I are appalled and deeply troubled by the recent behavior displayed by members of our Orange community. We are saddened for…
Your Opinions of Alcohol
We invite you to participate in a research project titled “Your Opinions of Alcohol.” This study was designed to better understand young adults’ opinions of alcohol.
To quality for the study, you must (1) be between the ages of 21 and 30, (2) speak English, and (3) be of Caucasian descent.
If you choose to participate in this study, you will be asked to visit our lab to complete several paper-and-pencil questionnaires, taste several types of alcoholic beverages, and view an alcohol-related film. The questionnaires will ask about your alcohol and substance use, your social environments, your opinions of the alcoholic beverages and alcohol-related film, and your alcohol-related thoughts and behaviors. In addition, you will be asked to donate saliva for genotyping analysis. These tasks will take approximately four hours of your time.
All information that you provide us will remain confidential; that is, your personal identifying information will not be attached to your responses and genotypes. If you participate in the entire research project, you will receive payment that is prorated based on the amount of time devoted to this project, rounding up to the nearest half hour. For example, if you participate for about 30 minutes, you will receive $5; if you participate for about 1 hour, you will receive $10.
If you are interested in participating in this study or you have any questions about this study, please contact us by email at SUprojecthealth@gmail.com or (315) 313-6027. Additional screening, though a brief phone screen, will be required to determine if you are eligible for our study. If you choose to participate in our study and sign up for a visit to our lab, we will send you a confirmation email of your scheduled visit along with detailed information about the location of our lab and contact information.
