UI Health Care researchers invite families to participate in study

The University of Iowa Department of Orthopaedic Surgery invites adolescents between the ages of 10 and 15 and their parents to participate in a research study.

Participants will spend approximately one hour reading information on a computer and answering questions. This survey can be completed anywhere a computer and Web access is available. The project will help researchers design another study to determine the best treatments for a type of scoliosis that is very common among school-aged children. Participants do not have to be diagnosed with scoliosis.

Compensation is available. For further information, contact Lori Dolan at (319) 356-1075 or Vani Sabesan at (319) 353-6743.
