4. Students needed for research study about health and fitness habits

Subjects are needed for a research study about the health and fitness habits of college students. This research project is designed to determine if completing a college course, Personal Health and Fitness, can impact dietary intake, physical activity, physical fitness and attitudes toward dietary intake and physical activity among college students over the course of two semesters.

Two groups of undergraduate students are being recruited: students who are enrolled in this course and students who are not enrolled. All project participants will be asked to complete an hour long assessment of their attitudes, dietary intake, physical fitness and physical activity at the beginning and end of the fall 2012 semester and at the end of the spring 2013 semester. Participants will be paid $5 for completing each of the assessments.

This study has been approved by Marquette's Institutional Review Board for the protection of human subjects. For more information about research participant rights, contact the Office of Research Compliance at 8-7570. For more information, contact Robert Topp, professor and associate dean for research in the College of Nursing, at 8-3811.
