Would you be interested in telling us about your recent experience of weight management? We are currently recruiting for a research study investigating older adults' experiences of weight management.

weight management


We aim to recruit healthy older adults, aged 65 or older, who have tried to lose weight over the last five years. 

We would like to invite them to take part in an interview along with completing a short questionnaire.

The present study

Interviews can take place at 1-19 Torrington Place or be completed over the phone, lasting approximately 30 minutes.

Participants who choose to complete the interview over the phone can get the information sheet, consent form and short questionnaire sent to them along with a Freepost envelope for returns. 

This study has been approved by UCL Research Ethics Committee (Project ID: 5234/001). Any data you provide will remain confidential, in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.

If you would like to find out more about taking part or know someone who might like to share their experiences of weight management with us, please contact Linn Holter by email.
