Research Study On Health-related Quality Of Life, Cognitive Performance And Celiac Disease

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

This is Lisa Barella and I am recruiting for a research study that I am conducting for my dissertation at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Please read below and if you would like to participate or want more information, please feel free to email me or call me. Thank you!

Volunteers are needed for a University of North Carolina at Greensboro Study on health-related quality of life, cognitive performance and Celiac Disease.

We need adults, with Celiac Disease, ages 20 and 75, to volunteer to complete questionnaires, cognitive tests, and fitness tests. Testing will take approximately 2 hours.

Ideally, you would have to be able to travel to North Carolina (Greensboro, Winston-Salem, Chapel Hill, Durham, Raleigh, Charlotte, Boone, or Ashville), Pennsylvania (Philadelphia, Montgomery, or Bucks County) or Naples, Florida. If there is enough interest in another United States city, then I would consider traveling there.

You will receive information regarding your aerobic fitness and a small donation will be made to the Gluten Intolerance Group in your name.

For more information, email or call Lisa A. Barella at lisabarella@hotmail.com or (336) 253-5539.

to the other Lisa....

The study is going on NOW. I am conducting the phone screenings. I have been overwhelmed with the number of responses. It is hard getting back to everyone immediately, but I am trying to return emails as quickly as possible. I am very excited about the study. I returned 323 emails in the last 72 hours. I am in the process of making 97 screening calls. Testing will start in April. I am going to be away at the Society of Behavioral Medicine conference at the end of March presenting data from a pilot study that I conducted last year on celiac disease, exercise, quality of life, anxiety, and depression. So, in April, I am gong to test everyone that I can at UNCG (Greensboro, NC) and then I will be moving through NC. In early May, I will head to Bucks County - in PA - to test up there. In late May, I will be down in Naples, FL. I will be back testing in NC in June. I am self-funding this research on my graduate stipend, so the locations are limited and were picked because I have housing, car, food, etc., in both of those areas. I would love to travel the country (and world) testing, if I could. Let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks so much! Lisa

Lisa - are you interested in participating?

Volunteers Needed for a Research Study at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG)

A doctoral student in Exercise and Sport Psychology is currently seeking people with Celiac Disease for a research study looking at the relationship between physical activity, aerobic fitness, health-related quality of life and cognition. Participants should be diagnosed (blood or biopsy) with Celiac Disease and between the ages of 20 and 75 to participate. The testing is occuring in April, May, and June at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Lisa is also going to travel to Asheville, NC, Durham, NC, Newtown, PA, or Naples, FL. Email her at lisabarella@hotmail.com for specific dates in those cities.

If you traveled to UNCG, the study would be conducted at the Health and Human Performance Building and our indoor track. At the other above-mentioned locations, the study will be conducted at a local meeting room, fitness center, or park.

Upon arrival at the testing site, informed consent will be obtained and then information will be gathered via questionnaires that assess general demographics, gluten-free diet, and health. Next, four cognitive tests will be performed and these will assess executive function. Third, you will complete surveys about your physical activity level and health-related quality of life. Fourth, you will perform a functional fitness test. Finally, you will complete a 1-Mile Fitness Walking Test, a submaximal test of aerobic fitness. This test will require you to walk as quickly as possible for one mile.

If this study seems of interest to you, please email or call Lisa Barella at lisabarella@hotmail.com or 336-253-5539, so that you can complete the 10-minute phone screening.
