Mind Your Health

We are currently recruiting participants for Mind Your Health.

Overweight participants aged 18-70 may be eligible to receive free weight loss treatment.

Mind Your Health is an NIH-funded randomized controlled trial designed to compare two gold standard behavioral treatments for obesity. The project has a special interest in real-time measurement of factors leading to dietary lapses throughout the day, and in strategies that lead to very long-term weight loss maintenance. The study will follow participants for three years.
