Abuelas en Acción

The “Abuelas en Acción/ Grandmothers in Action” (AEA) program proposes to explore the feasibility of implementing a behavioral change program addressing physical activity, nutrition and stress management for Latina grandmothers aged 50 and older. We have designed an intervention that is culturally sensitive to the targeted population by partnering with faith-based organizations to develop and deliver an evidence-based behavioral change curriculum that incorporates both intergenerational activities and religious content. Key issues related to efficacy, adoption, implementation and maintenance of the program in Latino communities at the individual (study participants) and organizational (provider organization) levels will be evaluated.
