Detailed Description:

Specific Aims

  1. Intervention group participants will have improved levels of protective behaviors (improved daily dietary composition and increased level of physical activity) that reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes compared to control group.
  2. Intervention group participants will have improved their status on clinical measures of risk for type 2 diabetes (anthropometric and metabolic status) compared to the control group.
  3. To assess whether theory-based variables, including changes in attitudes, behavioral and control beliefs, perceived social support and behavioral intention change from baseline, and whether these changes influence behavioral outcomes.
  4. To identify aspects of project planning and implementation that contributed to achievement of behavioral and clinical outcomes. Measures include recruitment, retention and intervention participation rates, barriers and facilitators of participation; and community involvement in, and satisfaction with, intervention components and project activities; and fidelity of intervention components.
