Participants are needed for the Enhanced Lifestyles for Metabolic Syndrome Study conducted by Rochester Institute of Technology’s Wegmans School of Health and Nutrition starting this November.  

The clinical trial evaluates a program developed at Rush University Medical School designed to reverse metabolic syndrome. The two-year study is open to Greater Rochester residents who do not have a history of heart attack, stroke, Type 2 diabetes or bariatric surgery, and who are not participating in other research studies. 

Eligible participants must have at least three of the following conditions that contribute to metabolic syndrome: high blood sugar levels, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and triglyceride levels, and a large waistline. All will receive nutrition and health education, a Fitbit, blood work and feedback on lab results at no cost.  

Individuals will be compensated for participating in the study. Call 585-484-7613, email or visit for information.
