Opportunity - Recruiting Participants for a Research Study

Saturday, December 01, 2018 at 12:00 AM
(This opportunity is available through March 2019)

Researchers at Drexel University are interested in understanding body image concerns and disordered eating behaviors in adolescents with Inflammatory Bowel Disease. This voluntary study is an online survey that is estimated to take 20-30 minutes to complete, and will ask participants to answer a variety of questions about your eating behaviors, quality of life, and emotional health. Participating in this study is your choice and will not impact your care. This study has been reviewed by the Drexel IRB.

You can take the survey here:
