Volunteers Needed for Type 1 Diabetes Study at Vanderbilt Medical Center

• Are you either a teen, age 12-17, or a young adult, age 18-30?
• Do you have Type 1 Diabetes?
• Do you have a cell phone?

If so, you may be eligible to participate in a study that will utilize text messaging to help patients better take care of their diabetes.
The study involves participation in a baseline session (approximately 45-60 minutes), where you will complete survey questions. You will have access to a website called SuperEgo for 3 months, during which time you can manage the text messages you receive and interact with other users. At the end of 3 months, you will be asked to come back in and answer follow-up questions on your experiences with the SuperEgo site.
You will be paid $25 for your participation after you complete the 3-month follow-up session.
