“There were also less participants who hadType 2 diabetes.”
The aspiring surgeon further explained that there were less participants aged 16 to 45 as well as participants aged 56 and over. Consequently, it was decided to expand the original study by collecting more data where they hope to attract over 500 participants, with 250 being male.
Kameron is the daughter of Angela Young and is the first Bermudian high school student to conduct a study of this magnitude.
Bermudian Dr. Carika E Weldon, a Scientific Researcher at The University of Oxford in England, shared the importance of conducting such a study as: “We as a community have a shared concern over Diabetes and have realized it is an issue.
“To tackle this problem, its essential that we look at it from every angle. Not only is this study timely, with the implementation of the sugar tax late last year, but the boldness of Kameron to try and tackle this as a high school student is inspiring and has already jolted the next generation of young scientists.”
Members of the public are invited to participate in the study by giving a cheek sample on Fridays and Saturdays, February 1, 2, 8,9, and 16 from 10 am to 6 pm at Planet Math.
Appointments can be pre–arranged online at httpc//bit.ly/BookKameronslab. The team are also looking to come to local businesses on Monday to Thursdays to collect samples.
