Translating a Heart Disease Lifestyle Intervention Into the Community
Translating a Heart Disease Lifestyle Intervention Into the Community
Translating a Heart Disease Lifestyle Intervention in the Community study will evaluate the feasibility and initial effectiveness of a community-based, culturally-targeted, lifestyle intervention to improve the cardiovascular health of underserved South Asian (Indian, Pakistani, Bangladeshi, Nepali, and Sri Lankan) Americans. Participants in this study will be randomly assigned to either a group to receive heart disease prevention classes or to another group where they will receive written materials about heart disease prevention.
South Asian individuals were recruited from a community based organization in Chicago and randomly assigned to the print health education group or the SAHELI intervention.

Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Single (Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Prevention
  • Obesity
  • Hyperlipidemia
  • Hypertension
  • Pre-diabetes
  • Diabetes
  • Behavioral: Lifestyle Intervention
    Participants will enroll in heart disease prevention group sessions focusing on physical activity, diet, weight, and stress management. Each group will have 6 to 8 participants who will attend 6 weekly, 90 minute group education sessions at Metropolitan Asian Family Services. During each session, participants will watch videos on the day's topic followed by discussion, activities, and assistance in setting realistic goals with attention to physical activity, diet, weight, and stress management. Participants will receive telephone support after each session and up to 12 weeks after they have completed the classes to help reinforce learning objectives.
  • Other: Print Health Education
    Participants will receive primary care referrals and print health education material about heart disease prevention in the mail.
  • Print Health Education
    Participants receive print health education materials
    Intervention: Other: Print Health Education
  • Experimental: Lifestyle Intervention
    Six weekly health education classes and phone counseling.
    Intervention: Behavioral: Lifestyle Intervention
