A UGA researcher is recruiting non-smoking, postmenopausal women for a 6-month study examining the effects of a diet and exercise intervention on weight loss and genetic markers.
The intervention will be performed in the Department of Kinesiology at the University of Georgia.
Participants may receive a pedometer, valued at $20. Additional incentives include the chance to win a 3-month membership to the Department of Kinesiology’s Center for Physical Activity and Health, valued at $105 each, for use following the completion of the study.
Due to the nature of the study, women with a history of weight loss surgery or those currently using weight loss medications can't be included. Because the study is interested in genetic markers, the intervention is limited to Caucasian women.
