Are you a Dog Owner? Would you like to participate in a research study?

Researchers at UMass Medical School are recruiting Worcester residents age 21 or older who own a dog to participate in a 1-hour focus group to gather opinions and perspectives on dog walking experiences. A focus group is a discussion where people are asked to voice their opinions about a particular subject.

Our research team would like your help in developing a community dog walking intervention program to encourage people to be more physically active.

You will be reimbursed for your time.

If you are interested in participating please contact Emily at (508) 856-7564
