Understanding Eating and Health

Are you 40+ years old? Consider participating in our online study! People 40 years of age and older have often been excluded from research evaluating these screening tools. The EMU behavioral health research team wants to know if commonly used screeners are giving healthcare providers enough information about eating behavior. Your participation also helps supports your choice of Meals on Wheels or Feed America.

You are eligible to participate if you are at least 40 years old, have access to the internet and email, and are able to answer questions in English.

What does participation involve?

  • Completing a consent form and several online questionnaires about yourself, your health, and your eating habits and preferences (about 20 min of your time), and
  • Recording your food choices using a 24-hour recall website. You will be asked for three 24-hour recalls (20mins or less of your time). After each recall, you can see a personalized nutrition profile. Once your third recall is completed, the study team will make a $1 donation to your choice of Meals on Wheels or Feed America.

This study MUST be completed on a computer. Smartphones and tablets will not work.
