Conscientiousness App Study

The purpose of the study is to learn more about whether people with MS benefit from a phone app that helps teach conscientiousness. You will participate in this study for about 6 months. You will be given a baseline assessment of cognition, personality, and work status. You will then be randomly assigned (like the flip of a coin) to be in one of two groups. One group will use a smart phone app for 3 months to help them with setting and achieving goals. The other group will not use the app. The study takes place at UB’s downtown campus. Participants will be compensated.

Adults ages 18+ with MS, currently employed full- or part-time
