Information Collection Request Title: WHAM: Women's Health and Mindfulness Program.
Abstract: The Women's Health and Mindfulness (WHAM) program, developed in San Francisco, aims to test interventions that promote healthy weight in lesbian and bisexual (LB) women age 40 years and older. The project to test the interventions is scheduled for one year.
Need and Proposed Use of the Information: The Office of Women's Health (OWH) and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) 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. The information collected in this ICR tests two approaches to reducing obesity in the LB population. The first is a community-level health system intervention that responds to Goal 4, Strategy 4-1 of the 2012 Institute of Medicine (IOM) report “Accelerating Progress in Obesity Prevention: Solving the Weight of the Nation;” and the second is an innovative group support program that combines mindfulness-based stress reduction, nutrition, and physical activity that will be evaluated for its feasibility and evidence of effect on short-term outcomes.
Likely Respondents: Lesbian and bi-sexual women age 40 years and older.
Burden Statement: Burden in this context means the time expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, disclose, or provide the information requested. This includes the time needed to review instructions, to develop, acquire, install and utilize technology and systems for the purpose of collecting, validating and verifying information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information, to train personnel and to be able to respond to a collection of information, to search data sources, to complete and review the collection of information, and to transmit or otherwise disclose the information. The total annual burden hours estimated for this ICR are summarized in the table below.
