January 2012: Dalhousie University and the Atlantic Center for Excellence in Women’s Health Seek Research Participants in Fredericton

Over the last 12 months, have there been times when you and other household members didn’t have enough to eat?

If so, and you are a woman and have experienced weight challenges, we would like to invite you to share your experiences as part of our research project. We will be conducting group discussions with women, aged 18 and older, to learn about your experiences and understandings around times when you are worried about not having enough to eat or actually did not have enough to eat, and weight challenges you faced as well as issues with chronic diseases. Group discussions will be taking place in communities across Atlantic Canada.

You will receive an honorarium for your participation. In addition, you will be reimbursed up to a limited amount for child care, parking fees, and or travel costs if you are taking a bus or taxi.

Group discussions will be taking place in Moncton and Fredericton
