Fancy a free health check? Volunteer for LJMU research
01 April 2011
The Alcohol Research Team, based within LJMU’s Centre for Public Health is looking for volunteers, Liverpool residents aged 36-55, to take part in vital research.
Alcohol-related absenteeism costs industry approximately £6.4 billion per year. Because Liverpool suffers from high levels of alcohol misuse its health and local economy are particularly at risk. Consequently, the Liverpool Institute for Health Inequalities Research has commissioned LJMU to identify levels of alcohol-related liver disease in the Liverpool population aged between 36 and 55 years (the peak age for such disease). This project will provide evidence to aid early detection of such disease and support appropriate service development.
Details for taking part
Venue: Room 1.14, Tithebarn Street building (next to the Avril Robarts LRC)
Dates: 7 April
Time: 9.30am – 2.00pm
No appointment required – just drop in.
You will receive a free health check and be asked to complete a short questionnaire looking at your levels of alcohol consumption. Details of height, weight and blood pressure will also be taken. Researchers will then analyse the questionnaires and some participants will be contacted for further involvement.
Taking part is voluntary, confidential and subject to standard data protection requirements. Withdrawal is possible at any stage without any prejudice to the individual. No personal information will be passed to third parties (eg. employers).
