Quality of Screen Time in Youth

We want to learn about how youth feel while they use screens such as when they play video games, use computers, smartphones, tablets, and watch Television. This will help us understand how we can increase good feelings while youth use screens and decrease bad feelings while youth use screens. We are looking for youth 12-18 years old, who can read and understand English to complete a short online survey.

CHEO authors: Dr. Katie Gunnell, Dr. Mark Tremblay, and Dr. Gary Goldfield of Healthy Active Living and Obesity Research Group CHEO RI.
We are currently recruiting participants from ages 12-18. Please contact Katie Gunnell at (613) 737-7600 x 4016 or by email at
Recruiting starts: April 25- June 15, 2017
