Download

This brief summary of the full report shows that participants in these obesity prevention programs under this initiative made modest, but positive behavior changes and—most importantly—sustained them for a year following the end of the program. Conducted by the National Research Center, the four-and-a-half year longitudinal study measured behavior changes and examined what individual, community and programmatic characteristics contributed to sustainable behavior change.
