La Trobe University Study – Type 2 Diabetes: Experiences of Young-Adults 1 August 2014 Tell us what itâ€™s like to have type 2 diabetes as a young-adult. Are you aged between 18 -24 years? Had type 2 diabetes for one year or more? Can complete a phone interview in English? If you have answered yes to these questions, then keep reading! Researchers at LaTrobe University are conducting a study to better understand the experience of living with type 2 diabetes in early adulthood. Your involvement would include completion of a telephone interview (around 40 minutes long) in which you would be asked to describe your experience of having type 2 diabetes. This study has been reviewed and approved by a Human Ethics Committee of LaTrobe University. If you are interested in volunteering or would like to enquire, please send an email to Claire Byrne.
