African-American girls needed for study on healthy eating, physical activity

Researchers at the USDA/ARS Children’s Nutrition Research Center at Baylor College of Medicine and Texas Children's Hospital are seeking African-American girls to participate in an 8-week internet based program about healthy eating and physical activity.

Participants must be 8- to 10-year old African American girls with access to a computer and high speed Internet and a parent willing to participate. There are no meetings to attend - participants log on to the web from the convenience of home.

For more information or to enroll, call Marilyn Navarrete at 713-798-7002.
