Invitation to participate: Impact of COVID-19 lockdown on dietary habits survey

Dear Type2Diabetes.com member,

My name is Joanna Tillinghast and I am a dietetic intern at the University of Saint Joseph working under Dr Margery Lawrence.

I would like to invite you to participate in a research study about the impact of the COVID-19 lockdown on dietary habits in individuals with type 2 diabetes. The study involves completing an anonymous online survey that will take approximately 6 minutes to complete.

Participation is entirely optional, and you may skip any questions that you do not wish to answer. If you are 18 years or older, with a glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c) greater or equal to 6.5% and you were living in Connecticut or Massachusetts between March 18th and May 18th 2020, and you were not pregnant, seriously, terminally ill or hospitalized during that period, then you are eligible to participate. If you wish to participate please click on the survey link below.


If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact myself, Joanna Tillinghast or Dr Margery Lawrence.

Thank you in advance for your participation,

Joanna Tillinghast MS
