Weight Loss Research Study!

Posting for a student in my area


My name is Jenna Ellison, and I am currently a 5th year Clinical Psychology PhD student from Southern Methodist University. During my graduate training, I have developed a love of working with weight loss surgery patients, and I learned that there are many things that can contribute to weight loss success. However, one thing that researchers know very little about is how marriage and relationships can impact weight loss outcomes. As a result, I decided to focus my dissertation on exactly that! I would love for you to participate in this study! Information about the study can be found below.


The Weight Loss and Relationships Project!

 Why participate?

Help researchers learn more about relationships and weight loss, and you will be entered in a drawing to win one of eight $50 gift cards!   


Who is eligible?

Adults who are either married or living with a significant other, have undergone weight loss surgery, and can answer questions in English.


What happens in the study?

If you decide to participate, you will complete the following tasks:

•         A 15-20 minute online questionnaire

•         And 7 days of online diaries that will take approximately 7 minutes per day


All study procedures are conducted on secure online survey sites so you can do the entire study from the comfort of your home!
