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, a prescription drug treatment for adult type 2 diabetes.

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.

Participants will be given information about their body composition and health and also receive a financial incentive.
