K99/R00 Pathway to Independence Award: Smart Walk: A Physical Activity Program for African American Women (K99HL129012; R00HL129012)
The goal of this award is to refine an established culturally relevant physical activity program for obese African American women, develop a Smartphone application to deliver the physical activity program, and to evaluate the effects of the intervention to improve and maintain high physical activity levels and reduce cardiometabolic disease risk among obese African American women. Study outcomes include changes in PA and feasibility and acceptability of the Smartphone-delivered program; secondary outcomes include cardiorespiratory fitness, cardiometabolic disease risk factors.
