Multiple Sclerosis Research Study
Do you have multiple sclerosis? Are you African American?
Are you aged 18-64?
If the answers to all these questions are yes, you may qualify for a study that will be examining the feasibility and effectiveness of changing sitting behavior and physical activity in multiple sclerosis.
What will you do?
You will need to wear activity monitors for 7-days during three occasions and will enroll in a 12-week program aimed at reducing sitting time and increasing physical activity. During this period, you will receive daily text messages and bi-weekly newsletter and calls.
Why is this research important?
Your participation in this project will help us to develop strategies that are effective in changing sitting and activity behavior in MS. These strategies may be implemented in large studies in future, which could potentially benefit large number of people with MS.
Will I be compensated for my time?
Yes, you will receive up to $75 for participation.
