Pennington announces new physical activity study

Pennington Biomedical Research Center is conducting a new clinical trial to compare the effects of physical activity and lifestyle changes on energy balance and how these changes may impact an individual's body composition.
The study, called E-MECHANIC: Examination of Mechanisms of Exercise-Induced Weight Compensation, is open to adults ages 18 to 65 who aren't currently involved in a structured exercise program.
The study is funded by the National Institutes of health.
E-MECHANIC will examine how three exercise programs can affect changes in a person's body and influence overall health.
The study will require participants to complete an orientation to determine eligibility as well as five screening visits and 11 clinic visits. Enrolled participants will receive up to $400 for participation.
To determine eligibility, call 225-763-3000, email clinicaltrials@pbrc.edu, or visit www.pbrc.edu/clinical-trials .
