GIRRL study



We are actively recruiting girls ages 8-15 years. We have flexible study visit times including afterschool and weekends.


Girls in rural areas are at much higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes compared to boys or girls in urban areas. We want to understand how behaviors, like learning from rewards, and how growth and development influence type 2 diabetes risk. 


Visits take place at Dr. Shearrer’s lab on the UW campus. We are located in the Agriculture building.
