dc.description.abstractBhatia, Shimona R., Pilot Project Evaluation: Keep It Healthy- An Obesity Prevention and Lifestyle-Modification Non-Profit Organization. Master of Public Health (Community Health), May 2007, 120 pp., 3 tables, 5 illustrations, references, 66 titles. This study was a secondary data set analysis and pilot-project evaluation of the Keep It Healthy non-profit organization. The eighteen-week program, which twenty-one qualifying participants completed, included dietary counseling, physical activity groups and classes as well as nutritional education. Overall, there was a significant (p-value [less than] 0.05) increase in fruit and vegetable consumption per day. There was also an increase in the days per week and minutes per day spent engaging in various levels of physical activity. There was also a significant decrease of average weight (164.10 to 169.49 pounds) and average body mass index (BMI) (30.04 to 29.14) of the group over the eighteen-week program.
