Food Allergy Counseling: Study from Northwestern Medicine: Risk Taking Behavior Among Adolescents with Food Allergy

My colleague, Dr Ruchi Gupta sent me the following information about a study she is conducting for teens ages 14-22.  

"The goal of this study is to learn more about the risk taking behaviors of food allergic adolescents – both in regard to general risk taking and risk taking as it relates to food allergy."  

*Nota Bene: I am in no way involved in any aspect this study.*

More information is below from Dr Ruchi Gupta at Northwestern Feinberg School of Medicine, Northwestern University:

Study Overview: Researchers at Northwestern Medicine are conducting a research study entitled “Risk Taking Behavior among Adolescents with Food Allergy," which is currently enrolling participants.  The goal of this study is to learn more about the risk taking behaviors of food allergic adolescents – 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 entirely anonymous and confidential electronic survey. 

No protected health or identifying information is being collected.  No compensation is being offered in exchange for study participation. All aspects of this research study have been approved by the Northwestern Institutional Review Board, IRB STU00097291.
