Obesity affects more than one-third of adults in America, with obesity being defined as anyone with a bodyweight 20% more than what is considered healthy for their age and height. Obesity results from an energy imbalance where the amount of calories consumed are greater than the amount of calories expelled. This can be caused by genetics, eating habits, location, and well-being.
Individuals who are obese are more likely to suffer from type 2 diabetes, hypertension, certain types of cancer and more. In addition to being life-altering and potentially fatal, these conditions put individuals at an increased risk of developing cardiovascular disease.
Research into adult obesity focuses on finding treatment options to alleviate health concerns and lose weight.
If you are obese but do not have acute or chronic pancreatitis and/or type 1 or 2 diabetes, you may qualify for our clinical trial.
Participants may receive compensation for time and travel. To see if you or someone you know may qualify for an obesity clinical trial, please contact us at 614-501-6164 or complete our online volunteer form.
This is a great way to make extra money and be involved in a research study that will help and benefit many people to come. I’ve really enjoyed myself with the program and with the staff.
"Thank you for your courtesy and kindness. I felt confident and comfortable. I would recommend the research study here. My coordinator was awesome and very caring."
Any stigma or hesitation about clinical research should be disregarded. A good learning program for research studies.
It's a good way to find out if there's some new drugs that can help people that have problems like mine and the people here are just wonderful to work with.
