Do you have an interest in participating in cancer prevention research that focuses on healthy lifestyles for Black women? The Carson Research Group at Moffitt Cancer Center is conducting the RESET study to assess if stress management can improve weight loss outcomes for Black women with obesity and elevated stress.

Participation includes following a lifestyle change plan, attending group-based education sessions, completing surveys, and providing basic body measurements, blood fingerstick samples, and saliva samples at 4 time points during the one-year duration of the study.
