Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Measure of body habitus (height, weight, waist and hip circumference, body fat by BIE) [ Time Frame: 14 weeks, 1 year, 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Biochemical markers (glucose tolerance, lipid panel, insulin, hemoglobin A-1-C) [ Time Frame: 14 weeks, 1 year, 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Behavior measurements (food, physical activity, weigh loss, stress, support and television viewing) [ Time Frame: 14 weeks, 1 year, 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Cost Assessment (costs incurred to attend meetings, eat healthier, exercise more) [ Time Frame: At two weekly meetings ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Group 1
Reach-Out Program, Nutritional and Exercise Intervention
Behavioral: Reach-Out Program, nutritional and exercise program

This group will participate in the Reach-Out nutritional and exercise program. This includes 14 weekly, group sessions involving both parents and children.

During these sessions, participants will receive hands-on education regarding food and exercise habits. Sample nutrition activities include learning to read nutrition labels on foods, a tour of a grocery store and practicing a recipe substituting low fat for high fat ingredients. Exercise activities involve physical activities appropriate for children and adults, respectively. Session leaders will help subjects set personal goals in the areas of nutrition and physical activity, and follow up on subjects' progress each week at sessions and with telephone calls between sessions. At the end of the 14-week program, subjects will be asked to attend four bi-monthly and 18 monthly follow-up sessions in which subjects will continue to meet as a group to work on goals in the areas of nutrition and exercise.

Active Comparator: Group 2
Reach-In Program, Standard of Care
Behavioral: Reach-Out Program, nutritional and exercise program

Behavioral: Reach-In Program, standard of care
This group will received standard medical care for their health condition. This includes meeting individually with a dietician to learn about diet, exercise and diabetes. This also includes developing an individualized meal plan.

Detailed Description:

This is a prevention study that evaluates a community-based, family oriented intervention called Reach-Out. The University of Chicago will partner with community organizations including the Women, Infants and Children [WIC] Clinic at the Chicago Department of Public Health Roseland Clinic, South Side YMCA, the Chicago Park District and the Southside Faith-Based Wellness Network of churches to deliver the intervention. Families will be recruited from the high risk population of patients in the University of Chicago Diabetes database and the Chicago Childhood Diabetes Registry; and La Rabida Children's Hospital; and from the broader south side African-American community ("outreach" population). Families will be randomized to behavioral intervention (Reach-Out Program, hands on nutrition and exercise) or control group(Reach-In Program, standard of care consultation).

All who participate in this study will be seen at the University of Chicago GCRC (General Clinical Research Center). They will be asked to come in at the beginning of the study, after 14 weeks, afer 1 year and after 2 years.
