Recruiting UW-Madison Students

The UWellness Study is a new research study focused on daily behaviors and health in college. We are conducting a study to learn more about college students’ behaviors in day-to-day life and health & well-being over time. We are particularly interested in how people use prescription medications. Participants will attend two lab sessions on campus and will be asked to fill out brief electronic surveys in daily life for up to one month. Freshmen and sophomores at UW-Madison are invited to complete screening procedures online; eligibility will be determined prior to enrollment. Sessions are conveniently offered throughout the week. Future phases of the research will involve online surveys every six months over the next two years. Compensation is provided for participation.

If you are interested in participating or learning more, please email the project staff at or call 608-263-2351. General questions about the research should be directed to Professor Lauren M. Papp in the Department of Human Development and Family Studies at or 608-262-8611. Visit us at
