The Department of Health Promotion in the College of Public Health is conducting a study to learn more about how intermittent physical activity helps control blood sugar. Researchers are seeking men and women ages 40-64 who are overweight or obese and able to perform exercise for two to four minutes at a time.
Participants will wear a glucose monitor for three days and will be provided meals during this time. They also will climb stairs on a stair climber machine for two to four minutes at a time, several times per day on two days.
Participants will be given information about their body composition and health and also receive a financial incentive valued up to $270 for completion.
