Matt is currently undertaking a PhD in Health Psychology at the University of Chichester, exploring footcare behaviours among people with diabetes. His current study is seeking to explore foot care behaviour among people with and without diabetes, to explore what people may do to care for their feet. For this he is seeking volunteers to complete two surveys over a two week period. The first survey will take approximately 30 minutes, and the second no longer than 15 minutes. At the end of the study, participants who have completed both questionnaires will be entered into a draw to win one of three £50/$50 gift vouchers!
