Research Study on Genetic Testing Looking for Survey Participants
by Jennifer Harris on April 12th, 2011
The Celiac Disease Center at Columbia University invites you to participate in a research study looking at individuals' knowledge of genetic testing of celiac disease and their potential concerns with such testing. The goal of this study is to increase understanding of the factors associated with making an informed decision regarding such testing and to better provide the necessary information to make such a decision.
A brief survey
has been developed to address some of these factors. The survey only takes five minutes to complete, it is anonymous, and no identifying information is collected.
If you or a family member has celiac disease or gluten sensitivity, please consider completing this online research survey.
This Examiner is a firm believer in genetic testing and had her daughter's genetic testing done at an early age. The testing isn't intrusive and we wanted to be informed and prepared. As a parent, we needed to know if this Examiner has passed on the gene to our child, which could lead to a development of Celiac Disease down the road.
