Adults Are Invited To Participate In UI Study On Health, Mood

Men and women age 35 and older who do not have any major chronic medical conditions such as heart disease, cancer or diabetes are invited to participate in a University of Iowa research study to understand the relationship between health and mood.

Eligible study participants will take a one-time survey that asks them to indicate their experiences with symptoms such as fatigue, irritability, concentration problems, appetite changes, increased heart rate, sweating, shortness of breath and restlessness. In addition, the survey will ask individuals to rate their overall health and to describe any health conditions they currently have.

The ultimate goal of this study is to improve understanding of the relationship between depression and anxiety and health in order to help identify and treat these conditions.

Surveys will be mailed to study participants; no travel is required. The survey will take approximately one hour to complete. Compensation is available.

For more information, call toll free 866-227-9875 or 319-335-2086, or send an e-mail to
