Participants needed for research on sedentary behaviour and health.

We are looking for adult volunteers over the age of 30 years to take part in a study that examines the effects of sedentary activities on health risk.

You will be asked to wear a small activity tracker and report your average weekly screen time, and small saliva and blood samples will be collected once to measure biomarkers indicating health risk. Your participation would involve four sessions to measure sedentary time and screen time, and one of these sessions will also measure health risk biomarkers.

The sessions will take between 10 and 60 minutes each, resulting in a total of approximately 2.5 hours of your time.

In appreciation for your time, you will receive a $25 gift card and be entered in a draw for a $100 gift card to a local restaurant upon completion of your participation in the study. You will also receive your own physical activity profile and biomarker data
(blood lipid profile, blood glucose, glycosylated hemoglobin, and C-reactive protein concentration) upon completion of your participation in the study.

Participation is confidential.
