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. Clinical trials are a necessary part of any medical research, and there are many focused on obesity.
If you suffer from obesity and have a history of cardiovascular disease, you might be eligible to volunteer for a clinical trial. Participants may receive compensation for time and travel. To see if you or someone you know may qualify, please contact us at 614-501-6164 or complete our online volunteer form.
The staff is all extremely friendly and professional. Looking forward to future studies
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. Thanks. I’ve really enjoyed myself with the program and with the staff.
Have found a significant change to the better from my research study. I experienced less shortage of breath and much better sleep. My daily activities are less hampered because of my better breathing. Thank you all.
Excellent staff. Dr. Arora took the time to not only explain everything but made every step of the research process a very pleasant, hopeful and informative journey.
