ECU Study is Looking for Volunteers

The Environmental Health Program at East Carolina University is looking for participants for a research study dealing with tick and mosquito exposure in forestry workers in western NC, western VA, southern WV, eastern TN, and eastern KY. The study will require minimal time from participants and up to five sets of their clothing, if they are chosen for the treatment group, will be treated with Insect Shield(www.insectshield.com) repellant at no cost to participants. The study will take place between May and June of 2013, and all 80 participants will be asked to continue their normal daily routine. If you are interested in enrolling or want more information contact East Carolina University’s Stephanie Richards at 252-328-2526 or richardss@ecu.edu
