Project REACH is an NIH-funded trial of a new healthy lifestyle program for teens ages 14-18.
The study involves four months of virtual group sessions (held over Zoom), in which teens will learn skills to improve their diets, increase their physical activity, and lead a healthier and happier life overall. Groups will be made of 5-10 participants and two lifestyle science experts who will lead the group discussions.
Project REACH also involves assessments intended to see how effective the group treatment sessions are. These assessments will occur before group treatment begins, halfway through treatment, at the end of treatment, and at 6 and 12 months after the treatment is completed.
Group sessions and assessments will take place over videoconference (Zoom). We are recruiting participants from anywhere in the U.S. to participate.
This study is being led by Dr. Stephanie Manasse, the Director of the WELL Center's Child and Adolescent Program. The Child and Adolescent Program is dedicated to producing rigorous clinical research and evidence-based treatment for adolescents experiencing weight and eating disorders.
