- How do I know if I qualify for a study?
Eligibility is determined by whether potential participants meet criteria for an eating disorder, reside within commuting distance to Temple University, and consent and agree to the research protocol. Other study-specific eligibility criteria may also apply. If you are interested in participating, please free to contact us either by phone at (215) 204-2645 or by email (email@example.com) to find out more information about the on-going studies and see if you qualify.
- How long are the in-person interviews?
Our initial in-person interviews typically take 1-2 appointments of approximately 3 hours each. Our psychobiological assessments typically take 1.5-3 hours but may depend on the nature of the study you are participating in.
