dc.description.abstractIn collaboration with the Lowell Community Health Center and the Lowell Boys and Girls Club, Dr. Handelman, Dr. Pbert and colleagues carried out an intervention trial, recruiting 25 overweight youth for a 5-month after-school intervention program. BMI, fasting insulin, and behavioral attitudes were monitored. There were not short-term improvements in physical health. The youth and their families had a very positive attitude toward the program, with changes in the direction of healthier diet behaviors. The social structure of this youth organization would be compatible with provision of long-term diet and life-style programs for all youth, including youth seeking to achieve normal body weight and physical activity.
