[Leadership Session Presentation] A University Neighborhood Nursing Center partnered with a minority community-based organization to provide health promotion programming to members of the local community, which consists primarily of African Americans.  In addition to the health promotion programming, the partners collaborated in community-based participatory research (CBPR) to evaluate program effectiveness.  The program consisted of 45 minute nutrition sessions, followed by 45 minute sessions of line dancing lessons. Graduate and undergraduate public health nursing students were mentored by faculty during program development, implementation, evaluation, and the conduct of CBPR. Pre and post data collected and analyzed included blood pressure, blood glucose, blood cholesterol, body mass index (BMI), and health related quality of life as measured by the SF-36 instrument. Qualitative data on the influence of faith community support was also collected and analyzed.  Preliminary findings demonstrated a trend in reduction of blood pressure, cholesterol, blood glucose, and BMI. We will present an overview of the program, outcomes based on analysis of the data, and student reflections on the experience.
