Both doctors and nurses will be recruited and trained to assist with evaluation the outcomes of the program.
Need and Proposed Use of the Information: Addresses barriers to health for the LB community, and promotes overall health and wellbeing. The intervention will incorporate community-identified weight loss/risk reduction needs of this population. Following the completion of the surveys and interventions, collected data will be used to develop, deliver and evaluate a curriculum for medical professionals, which will emphasize working with LB women's particular needs and expectations. And emphasize skills in motivational interviewing for helping patients to undertake new and difficult lifestyle adjustments.
