Proposed Collection: Cardiovascular Health and Needs Assessment in Washington, DC—Development of a Community-Based Behavioral Weight Loss Intervention, New, National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI), National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Need and Use of Information Collection: The purpose and use of the information collection for this project is to determine the prevalence of ideal, intermediate, and poor cardiovascular health factors based on American Heart Association (AHA)-defined goals within a church-based population in wards 5, 7, and 8 in Washington, DC. The information collected will also evaluate data from handheld devices, such as wearable physical activity monitors or digital cameras, to objectively measure physical activity and dietary intake from selected community members. This protocol will then identify technology that may be incorporated into future interventions. In addition, the collected information used will be examined for methods of referral for treatment for unrecognized hypertension, diabetes, and hypercholesterolemia in the community-based population. Social determinants of obesity, particularly environmental, cultural, and psychosocial factors that might help or hinder weight loss, will be evaluated in the population. This information from the screening and needs assessment will establish a community-based participatory research (CBPR) partnership for the future design and implementation of a church-based, behavioral weight loss intervention.

OMB approval is requested for 2 years. There are no costs to respondents other than their time. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 2,380.
