Online Studies

Here are ways that you can help advance research – from the comfort of your home. Take part in these online, telephone, or postal studies (or find in-person study locations). 

School-Related Seasonality in Pediatric Functional Abdominal Pain

Does your child suffer from stomachaches? Physicians at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill want to know what factors make children's stomachaches worse or better during the school year.

Researchers are looking for parents of children/adolescents who:

  • Have frequent stomachaches - no prior physician diagnosis needed
  • Attend school from fall to spring and have summers off

The research study will involve 2 online questionnaires. No visits to UNC are required. Participants completing the study will be automatically entered in a drawing for a $50 or $100 Amazon gift card redeemable online.
