Researchers at the University of Maryland Medical Center are looking for women between the ages of 50 and 65 who want to lose weight, but think they can't, to participate in a study. Participants must be healthy, non-smokers who are 15 to 35 pounds overweight. In addition, they must have been postmenopausal for at least one year and are not taking female hormones. Participants will receive free medical and fitness evaluations. Those who qualify will be invited to join a free weight loss and walking program. For more information, call (410) 605-7179.
