Brief Summary:
The study is designed to determine if instituting a Healthy Beverage Initiative (HBI) at hospitals influences health and wellness of employees over a 12 month period.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Health and Wellness Other: Healthy Beverage Initiative Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
To examine whether HBI is associated with decreased adiposity over a 12-month time period, in comparison to individuals identically assessed but not exposed to a HBI. Specifically, do those exposed to the HBI decrease in measures of adiposity, BMI, and sugar sweetened beverage (SSB) intake? Do they decrease more in those measures as compared to those not exposed to the HBI?

Arm Intervention/treatment
Active Comparator: Healthy Beverage Initiative
A Healthy Beverage Initiative and health education will be implemented at two hospital campuses.
Other: Healthy Beverage Initiative
A Healthy Beverage Initiative will be instituted at two hospital campuses.

No Intervention: Control Arm
No change in beverages or education at two hospital campuses.



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Abdominal adiposity [ Time Frame: About one year. ]
    Study participants at HBI campuses will show improvements (specifically, decreases) in indices of abdominal adiposity measured using waist circumference in centimeters.

  2. Abdominal adiposity [ Time Frame: About one year. ]
    Study participants at HBI campuses will show improvements (specifically, decreases) in indices of abdominal adiposity measured using sagittal abdominal diameter in centimeters.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Body Mass Index (BMI) [ Time Frame: About one year. ]
    Study participants at HBI campuses will show improvements (specifically, decreases) in body mass index [BMI] measured using height in centimeters and weight in kilograms to be calculated into BMI in kg/m^2.

  2. Sugar Sweetened Beverage Intake [ Time Frame: About one year. ]
    Study participants at HBI campuses will show improvements (specifically, decreases) in SSB intake measured by the BEVQ (beverage food frequency questionnaire).
