Are you interested in helping to advance diabetes research in New Brunswick? 

UNBF’s Faculty of Kinesiology is looking for participants aged 19-50, who haven’t been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, and are carrying extra body weight, to take part in The iMET Study. Over four visits, participants will take part in an initial exercise session, an initial consultation with testing to measure their health, followed by two 35-minute exercise sessions which include tests to measure health.

Taking part in this study will not only provide you with more information on your health and physical activity levels, but will help others in our community struggling with their own.

This study is on file with the UNB Research Ethics Board as UNB REB #2017-105.

For more information, please email Martine Girard at or call 506-458-7034.
