PROGRAMS:

Web-based Physical Activity Intervention for College-aged Women

The program is designed to promote physical activity among college-aged women.  The intervention includes the following: 1) Modules 1-9; 2) Goal Statement form; 3) Recording Sheet; 4) Directions for Wearing Pedometer; and 5) Participant form.  A research study was conducted to test the efficacy of the intervention and at posttest, the intervention group increased their physical activity significantly higher than the control group.

RESEARCH SYNTHESIS:

Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR) and the Community Guide

The Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR) now includes an announcement of Community Preventive Services Task Force findings each time a summary of the finding is posted on The Community Guide website.
