Food Allergy Study Participants Needed


We are currently recruiting participants for a study entitled “Risk-Taking Behavior among Adolescents with Food Allergy”. The goal of this study is to learn more about the risk-taking behaviors of adolescents with food allergies – both in regard to general risk-taking and risk-taking as it relates to food allergy. 

In order to participate in the study, adolescents between the ages of 14 and 22 years who currently have a food allergy are being asked to complete an anonymous and confidential electronic survey. No protected health or identifying information is being collected. No compensation is being offered in exchange for study participation. This study is being conducted by myself, Dr. Ruchi Gupta, MD, MPH of Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine. All aspects of this research study have been approved by the Northwestern Institutional Review Board, IRB STU00097291.
