Savannah State University Community Outreach Obesity Program (COOP) officials will hold a seminar/registration session, October 29, to recruit minority, moderate-to-low income, overweight or obese men, women, and children, ages 8-70, who are interested in participating in the second phase of a weight-loss program. The session will start at 6 room 211 of the Drew-Griffith Science Building on the SSU Campus.
