This study at the University of California, Los Angeles, is investigating whether exercise and dietary interventions designed to reduce body weight affect body composition, hormones, and biomarkers in healthy postmenopausal women. The researchers were looking to enroll at least 20 volunteers. The Call to Action for this study was sent to Army of Women members on January 7, 2009. The researchers were able to close enrollment just two days later on January 9, 2009, after the Army of Women provided them with 125 women who were interested in enrolling in the study.
