Volunteers Needed for Research Study on Effects of Short-term Green Exposure in an Urban Environment
IRB# 23.0437

The Envirome Institute is inviting healthy adult volunteers to come to our site in downtown Louisville for 2 separate visits, to walk within an urban park and surrounding area while wearing mobile cardiovascular and monitoring devices.

The purpose of our study is to understand the impact of greenness on stress in humans. This involves 40 minutes spent in a park or urban location, saliva samples, urine samples, health questionnaires, blood pressure and heart rate assessments.

We will also ask you to come back in 3 years after a greening intervention (planting of trees and other greenery).

Participants will receive a $50 pre-paid gift card for each completed visit.
