Community rallies to fight obesity in Cleveland's urban youth
Date:11/15/2010

tudy is the central role played by Cleveland's young people and their families. They will participate in focus groups to co-design the study, tailoring it to the lifestyle and needs of Cleveland's overweight/obese students. The students' families will be involved at every level too, including invitations to regular meetings, the opportunity to provide feedback on the study's structure and participating in the interventions. This input will ensure the program is designed to be age and ethnicity appropriate, accommodating all levels of ability. Finally, a community advisory board will be created to counsel the study's leaders.

"We expect the findings of our program and those of the other COPTR studies to contribute to the national discussion on childhood obesity in urban youth. Cleveland's program provides a unique opportunity where research can inform policy," concludes Elaine A. Borawski, PhD, one of the study's principal investigators and associate professor of epidemiology and biostatistics at Case Western Reserve School of Medicine.
