Research Participants Needed | Betel Nut Biomarkers Study
Participants are being sought for the Betel Nut Biomarkers Study led by the University of Guam Cancer Research Center. The study is looking for participants who chew betel nut without tobacco and lime.
The study aims to better understand betel nut-induced cancers on the island, which will help reduce the impact of cancer on Pacific island populations. By participating, you will be greatly assisting with this innovative study and helping to increase Guam's representation in research.
Participants will be asked to provide hair strands and cheek swabs and to complete a short survey. It will be a one-time meeting that will last an estimated 30 minutes.
Participants will be compensated with a $40 gift certificate for either gas or groceries. Participants can also receive an additional $10 gift certificate for either gas or groceries for each participant they successfully recruit for the study.
Participation will be on a first call basis.
