Smoking, obesity studies need volunteers

Anyone interested in participating in an MU psychological study about personality, smoking habits and health can gain the chance to add an extra $50 in their wallet. Participants will complete a set of online questionnaires for about 45 minutes and will be entered into a drawing to win one of two $50 checks. Participants must be either a current of former smoker. For more information, contact the Social Health Laboratory at

Obese men with Type 2 diabetes are also requested for a separate and unrelated breakfast-eating study. The MU study will examine glucose and hormone response to eating high carbohydrate breakfasts versus a high protein breakfast. Participants must be 25 to 50 years old, not be on insulin, be a non-smoker and must eat breakfast regularly. Any interested can contact Jill Kanaley at 573-882-2519 or
