New Study Recruiting Women with PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome)
The Penn PCOS Center is conducting a clinical trial to determine the best treatment plan for women with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) to improve their mood symptoms, response to stress, and risk for heart disease.
Study participants receive one of two treatments: 1) Nutrition counseling plus Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, a specific type of therapy that addresses depression and anxiety, or 2) Nutrition counseling alone. This involves meeting once weekly with a Registered Dietician for 16 weeks and with a Clinical Psychologist for 8 weeks at the University of Pennsylvania.
Women with a diagnosis of PCOS who are overweight or obese and screen positive for symptoms of depression may be eligible to participate. For more information visit the study page or call Molly at 215-662-7727.
