Family Health Project


This project, conducted from 1984-1990, tested the effectiveness of a family-based health behavior change intervention in two ethnic groups. The aim was to help family members initiate and maintain dietary and physical activity behaviors believed to be linked to risk factors for cardiovascular disease. A multi-part survey was used to evaluate program outcomes and psychosocial mediators.
