Volunteers needed for a 5-hour workshop to help you adopt healthy lifestyle behaviors

You may be eligible to participate if you identify as female, White or African American, are aged 35-65, and have a BMI of 30+. Participants will receive $50 as thanks for their participation.

This study is a 5-hour workshop delivered in groups that is based on principles of acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT). Participants will learn new skills to facilitate the adoption of healthy lifestyle behaviors, such as eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly. These skills include identifying values, tolerating the discomfort associated with lifestyle change, identifying self-sabotaging thoughts, and more!
