Despite the high prevalence of type 2 diabetes (T2D) in middle age and older African American women, limited research has explored associations among depressive symptoms, perceived social support and physical activity in these persons. The purpose of this secondary data analysis was to examine the relationships among depressive symptoms, perceived social support and physical activity in a convenience sample of women (n=45) aged from 35 to 73 years (M = 55.26 ± 11.90 years) and enrolled in primary care centers in the southeastern US. The data were collected as part of a larger Institutional Review Board approved study. Five instruments were used in the study to assess study variables: 1) State-Trait Anxiety Inventory (state and trait anxiety); 2) Center for Epidemiological Studies Depression Scale (depressive symptoms); 3) Medical Outcomes Survey Social Support Questionnaire (perceived social support); 4) National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute Framingham Coronary Heart Disease Risk Prediction Score (CVD risk); and 5) Personal, Health and Sociodemographic Questionnaire (sociodemographic and health information). Findings indicated significant associations between depressive symptoms, perceived social support and physical activity. Middle-aged and older African American women with T2D in this study had high perceived social support scores, regular physical activity (3 times per week), and low depressive symptom scores.  Findings warrant further investigation to improve health outcomes in middle-aged and older adult African American women with T2D.
