COMIRB number


We are looking for teenage girls with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) for a research study to find ways to prevent health problems related to PCOS. Our participants must be 12-17 years old, have been diagnosed with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, be receiving PCOS-related care at Children's Hospital Colorado, and sometimes feel stressed or depressed. The main purpose of this study is to find out whether taking part in a group-based interpersonal psychotherapy (IPT) program designed to improve mood and lessen stress in girls with PCOS will improve depression, unhealthy eating behaviors, weight and insulin resistance. Participants can earn up to $250 if they are eligible and complete all parts of the study. If this information is of interest to you, please contact us.
