Research participants sought

The kinesiology department in the College of Education is conducting a study to learn more about metformin’s effects on the body. Researchers are seeking men and women ages 18-75 who currently are taking metformin. The study will be completed in three parts over the course of two to three weeks.

Participants will wear a glucose monitor for two different three-day sessions and will be provided meals during this time. They also will walk on a treadmill for one short session and two longer sessions.

Information gathered from this study may be used to improve future medical treatment. Participants will be given information about their body composition and health and also receive a financial incentive. Contact Melissa Erickson with additional questions at or 706-829-2560.
