Information Collection Request Title: Living Healthier, Living Longer Program Evaluation.

Abstract: The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the Office of Women's Health, (OWH) Coordinating Committee on Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual and Transgender (LGBT) Issues has prioritized the collection of health data on LGBT populations. In response, OWH funded an initiative to “identify and test effective and innovative ways of reducing obesity in lesbian and bisexual women” (HHS, 2012). This initiative will include nutritional and physical activity counseling and activities, and will be implemented in New York City. It will be tailored to bisexual and lesbian women forty years and over. Evaluation of the initiative will address the following questions: (1) Does a healthy weight intervention based on the individual and the social environment improve health and reduce weight of older lesbian and bisexual women; and, (2) If the intervention does improve health and/or reduce weight, what attributes of the intervention contributed to this success? Information will be gathered and analyzed in an effort to identify and understand the effects of this healthy weight intervention and to inform the applicability of the intervention to other sites across the United States. The project is scheduled for one year.
