Participate in a Nutrition Intervention Study

We are looking for volunteers to participate in a nutrition intervention study that seeks to better understand the potential benefits of dairy fat against type 2 diabetes. The study is being conducted at the UVM Clinical Research Center (CRC).

Qualified participants must be:

  • Overweight men and women ages 50-65
  • Having consistent dietary habits that include dairy products
  • Available for 8 consecutive weeks

What is required?

The total length of commitment will be 8 consecutive weeks consisting of 4 diet periods during which all food will be provided by the CRC. This study involves:

  • Physical exam and blood test to determine eligibility
  • Questionnaires
  • Blood and stool tests at baseline and the end of two experimental diets

$1,000 compensation is provided if you qualify and complete the study.
