The purpose of this project is to demonstrate the effectiveness of a "train-the-trainer" model for community intervention in a Hispanic/Latino urban community. The project represents a creative collaboration between a faith-based organization and nurse researchers. Based on analysis of disease trends and sociodemographic variables in the target community, health promotion interventions are being targeted at key areas of physical activity, nutrition, and blood pressure. Lay Trainers recruited from the faith-based community center are being prepared to take basic health and lifestyle information related to these areas to their neighbors and friends in both informal and formal settings. Program materials have been developed in both languages of the community - Mexican Spanish and English. Teaching materials and equipment for the Lay Trainers are being provided though grant funds. Both process and outcome evaluations are planned. Data regarding the number and type of volunteer Lay Trainers, number and type of sessions (activity, nutrition, and blood pressure), number and type of sessions that Lay Trainers present for the community at large, and attendance patterns will be collected and analyzed. Evaluation data from class participants in both the Lay Trainer sessions taught by project staff and the community session taught by the Lay Trainers will also be examined. Health promotion behavior change (outcome) will be evaluated by analysis of pre- and post intervention assessment tools such as the BAECHE activity questionnaire and the Rate Your Plate/ ¿Que Hay En Su Plato? food intake assessment. General health information will be assessed using a researcher-developed tool based on the American Heart Association health status survey.
