Abstract:

This health promotion project is a 12-week program for adults in a rural West Virginia community with a BMI of 25 or greater.  The goals of this project was to facilitate learning through modules focusing on activity and nutrition, increase knowledge of healthy activity and nutrition, and improve weight and BMI.

Each 12-week session provided evidenced-based information regarding obesity, physical activity, and nutrition.  Participants completed pre- and post-program and one-month follow-up survey/questionnaire.  Results were compared for changes in activity, nutrition, and BMI. The program resulted in positive changes:  increase in activity and nutritional consumption and a decrease in BMI.
