Call for study patients

Researchers at the Moores UCSD Cancer Center are recruiting participants for an innovative diet and exercise program that aims to reduce postmenopausal breast cancer risk through lifestyle change.

The Healthy Eating & Living Program for Weight Control (HELP) study uses an Internet-enhanced telephone counseling intervention program to help women improve their lifestyle habits.

The HELP study is a randomized, controlled trial that tracks participants’ weight, health habits, physical activity, diet and quality of life over the course of 12 weeks. Participants will fill out questionnaires, keeping physical activity logs and food records, and attend two clinical visits at Moores UCSD Cancer Center in La Jolla.

Eligible women must be between the ages of 45 and 70, be overweight or obese, want to increase their physical activity and improve their diet, and have high-speed Internet access.
