Study Recruitment: Genetic Testing of Children and Adults with Obesity

You or your child (age 2 or older) may be eligible for a genetic testing study to find out if the extra weight is due to genetics

In this study we will:
Ask you to visit us to the University of Alberta to collect a blood sample for your arm, measure your height and weight, and ask you questions about your appetite.

OR, mail you a buccal swab kit to your home to collect a saliva sample, and ask you to send the samples back on a pre-paid envelope provided with the kit. We will also ask you questions about your weight history and appetite behaviors.
