Mi Vida Saludable en el Valle 1 | Cook for Your Life

The purpose of this research is to understand the best way to teach Latino adults with a history of hypertension, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancer, or obesity how to eat a healthy diet and maintain 150 minutes per week of moderate‐to‐vigorous physical activity. People who agree to join the study will be asked to attend up to 6 study online sessions over a period of 3 months. We are doing this study to understand how to create an effective education program for Latinos living in rural areas who have a history of hypertension, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancer, or obesity. We want to know how to address the needs of Latinos residing in Lower Yakima Valley.
