UH researchers study Hispanic children's activities, views on places to play
Date:2/15/2008

equipped with an accelerometer to monitor the number of times they move, an Ecological Momentary Assessment (EMA) devicewhich resembles a remote-control unit that randomly asks questions about physical activity, and a Global Positioning System to capture the students locations and the speeds at which they are being active. Mothers will also be fitted with EMA devices.

This is an important aspect to the study because it means our data will come from objective measures, Olvera said. To our knowledge, this is the first study that will provide such objective information about the physical activity of this population.

Work on UH-PEAK is expected to be completed in June 2009. Olvera anticipates presenting the data at the conference for Active Living Research in early 2009, along with her colleagues Dennis Smith and Jill A. Bush with the University of Houston and Chanam Lee with Texas A&M University.

Olveras research is specific to the Hispanic community and has often included the role mothers play in the nutritional and physical activity choices for their children. Her expertise includes the influence of parents in a childs body image and nutritional and physical activity habits, and the environmental factors that prevent or promote physical activity. Based on her research, Olvera developed the after-school healthy lifestyle program BOUNCE, Behavior Opportunities Uniting Nutrition and Counseling Education, which focuses on exercise and nutrition for middle-school girls and their mothers. For the last three years, she has offered a healthy summer program for Hispanic and African American girls, which was recognized by the Texas Public Health Association as a 2006 Nutrition and Physical Activity Best Practices program.
