Lab looking for research participants

Have you always wanted to be a part of the scientific process?

CSU’s Clinical Interventions Laboratory is looking for women between the ages of 18 and 60 to participate in research of omega-3 fatty acids and insulin.

Women must be healthy and non-smoking to take part in the study, which examines how omega-3 fish oil consumption plays into risk for developing and prevention of type-2 diabetes, according to a press release on the opportunity.

The total time commitment for the study is about 13 hours over a series of eight visits to the
Human Performance Clinical Research Laboratory. It includes five visits that last about 15 minutes and two that span four hours.

Participants will be provided with literature explaining results and compensation for their time.
For information on how to get involved, contact Sarah Deemer with the Clinical Interventions Lab at sdeemer@cahs.colostate.edu or 970-491-6017.

Women at Noon to talk about attention deficit disorder

Sponsored by the Office of Women’s Programs and Studies, Women at Noon is today talking about how attention deficit disorder pops up in the female college community.

“Attention deficits aren’t just a problem for children or males; many college students and women struggle with them as well,” according to the event information.

The program will introduce what an attention deficit disorder is, explain treatments and possible causes and help individuals concerned identify on-campus resources.

“Untreated attention deficits can have a significant negative impact on a student’s academic performance,” according to the same event information.

The Women at Noon program hosts weekly lunchtime discussions and presentations, to see upcoming events visit http://www.wps.colostate.edu/women-at-noon.aspx.

This event is free and open to the public.
