UA Researchers Seek Pain Sufferers’ Feedback on Yoga
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Members of the psychology department at The University of Alabama are seeking participants for a research study on attitudes toward yoga among chronic-pain sufferers.
Martha Combs, a doctoral student at UA, is leading the research. She is seeking Tuscaloosa community residents who are 55 and older and who have significant pain resulting from an injury or medical condition that has lasted at least three months.

Participants will be compensated $10 for completing their role in the research study.
The psychology department is part of UA’s College of Arts and Sciences, the University’s largest division and the largest liberal arts college in the state.
