Cause of Symptom Studies

Research Coordinator:

Stefanie Twist


The Center for Functional GI and Motility Disorders is in the process of validating a symptom diary that will be used in a future research study. We want to find out if people who do and do not have accidental bowel leakage, also known as fecal incontinence, understand the diary questions and provide feedback on the diary.

Participation in this research study involves filling out a daily diary for four weeks and answering questionnaires before and after the research study. No intervention is involved in this research study.

This research study involves 2 in-person visits that will last up to 60 minutes for each visit. They can be scheduled either at the UNC-CH campus or the UNC-Hillsborough campus for your convenience.

 You can earn up to $100 for participation in this research study.
