Do you identify as an individual living with cancer and part of the LGBTQIA+ community or a care partner of someone in this community? A research lab at the University of Alabama at Birmingham is looking to learn about the day-to-day experiences of LGBTQIA+ cancer survivors and their care partners. We are interested in how individuals manage difficult situations related to their respective roles in their relationships. Individuals living with cancer often encounter stressful situations that can impact their mood and any additional stressors from living as a sexual or gender minority with a lack of resources adds an increased risk of experiencing stressful situations. The goal of this work is to develop resources that better support the well-being of LGBTQIA+ individuals living with cancer and their care partners. This study will take place FULLY online with completion of daily surveys. All participants will be compensated. To learn more about our study contact us at starlab@uab.edu

Study of an investigational device for improving glycemic control in adults with type 2 diabetes. It is an external headset that attaches behind the ears to deliver a small electrical current to the vestibular system – the balance system in the inner ear. Previous research suggests that activating the vestibular nerve may cause a reduction in body fat but also improve glycemic control. The aim of the study is to evaluate whether frequent use of the device, along with a lifestyle modification program, can improve glycemic control. Contact 205-996-4015 or 205-996-4020 for more information.

If you are 19 or older and an exclusive vaper (meaning only vaping and no cigarette smoking) who lives with someone who does not vape, or a non-vaper who lives with an exclusive vaper, you may qualify for this study. The person who vapes/does not vape can be your roommate, partner, etc. Potential participants will be screened before enrollment to ensure they are eligible. Once enrolled, participants will blow into a spirometer to measure their lung function and answer questions on respiratory symptoms. If you are interested, please email at rvlab1665@gmail.com or provide your details via this link: https://uab.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_6ExuSQMcdg3AC8K, and we will contact you. Thank you!
