Information Collection Request Title: MOVE: Making Our Vitality Evident.

Abstract: 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 have 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 Healthy Weight in Lesbian and Bisexual Women Program was established in Washington, DC. The purpose of the program is to evaluate interventions that promote healthy weight in LB women through a 16-week group support program, including physical activity and nutrition, tailored to sexual minority women. 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.

Likely Respondents: Lesbian and bi-sexual women forty years of age and older.
