Health researchers looking for study participants

October 29, 2012

Do you sit at a desk all day? Do you feel still when the day is over?

Researchers from ASU's School of Nutrition & Health Promotion are recruiting participants for a research study that will test the feasibility of a sedentary intervention to decrease sitting time at work.

Who: Healthy non-smoking men and women

Eligibility: While there are no restrictions for participating in physical activity, study subjects should currently work in a desk-based job.

What: Study requires three visits to the Downtown Phoenix campus (NHI2 building)

• The first visit will last 30 minutes in your own office. You will go about your day as you normally do in your office while wearing monitoring devices for physical activity.

• The second visit is a one-hour orientation session.

• Ten weeks later, the third visit will last 30 to 60 minutes and will include follow-up surveys and require the wearing of physical activity monitoring devices.

Between the second and third visit, study subjects will receive weekly health newsletters.

Benefits: Will be given a health assessment and personalized feedback on physical activity levels.
