Student-led Research Project Seeking Participants

Senior health science majors Robert Hartsell and Cameron McClure are looking for students to participate in their research project to help spread awareness about heart disease, diabetes and the relationship between these two diseases, as well as provide simple actionable steps to protect people’s health.

Participating in this IRB-approved research is voluntary and could involve taking a pretest survey, participating in the educational events and completing a post-test survey following the educational events. Both surveys should take no more than 15 minutes to complete, and the educational sessions vary in length.

Participants should attend/listen to at least one of three educational events. The first event will be multiple tabling events from 8:30-10:30 a.m. Feb. 26 in Magruder Hall, 2-4 p.m. Feb. 27 Violette Hall and 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. March 1 in Ophelia Parrish. Bookmarks with information about misconceptions regarding heart disease and diabetes will be available.

The second event will be a 30-minute presentation on proper nutrition to help prevent heart disease and diabetes at 5 p.m. March 7 in Magruder Hall 2001.

The third event is a 15-minute podcast on proper exercises to help prevent heart disease and diabetes which will be posted to Healthy Habits TSU YouTube Channel during the first week of March.
