Are you between the age of 18-55?

If the answer is yes, we invite you to take part in a voluntary study ‘Feasibility, Acceptability, and Validity of Energy Intake Measurement in Multiple Sclerosis. What will you do? You will be asked to complete 2 assessment visits and go through a measure of your energy expenditure, body composition, cognition and questionnaires about your diet and physical activity. Why is this research important? Research examining the influence of diet on multiple sclerosis (MS) disease course and symptoms is a top priority among persons with MS and those who are working to end MS disease. There are currently no valid measures of energy intake in persons with MS. We are recruiting adults without MS in order to compare the accuracy of measurements of energy intake that will be used in future studies to measure relationships between diet and symptoms in MS. What’s in it for me? You will be helping others by contributing to ongoing MS research and you will receive $75 for completing each assessment.
