We will also begin recruiting for another weight loss study in Fall 2021! In the meantime, if you would like, you can sign up for our Research Participant Registry.
Join our Research Participant Registry
You are invited to add your name and contact information to our registry used for reaching out to individuals interested in participating in our future research projects. The UConn Center for mHealth and Social Media conducts research related to improving health through weight loss, skin cancer prevention, and other areas. Adding your information to this registry means you would like us to invite you to participate in our future research studies. If you would like to be added to our registry, please proceed to the next page to answer a few questions including your contact information and study topic interests. When we begin recruitment for a future study, we will email you and provide you with information about that study. At that time, you can decide if you are interested in participating and reach out to our team to see if you qualify. You are not obligated to participate in any study for which you are contacted. You may not directly benefit from being added to our registry or participating in our research programs. However, you may ultimately learn more about health topics like weight loss and skin cancer prevention, which may carry potential benefits. Your contact information will be stored electronically in our university-supported and protected server. Only approved staff will have access to it. We will do our best to protect the confidentiality of the information we gather from you but we cannot guarantee 100% confidentiality. Your confidentiality will be maintained to the degree permitted by the technology used. Specifically, no guarantees can be made regarding the interception of data sent via the Internet by any third parties. You do not have to be a part of our registry if you do not want to be. We will be happy to answer any questions you have about this registry. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your questions or if you decide that you would like your name and contact information to be removed from the registry after you join. You may also contact the Center Director and Principal Investigator of the research at Sherry.Pagoto@uconn.edu if you have further questions about our research.
