"Obesity Reduction and Prevention in Minority and Low-income Workers"

This project focused on a health disparity that is largely ignored – the lack of access to or participation in employer – sponsored wellness programs among racial/ethnic minority and low-income workers, a population with low success in weight reduction. This project evaluated social determinants of these disparities, barriers to participation, and the effectiveness of current worksite programs aimed at sustained weight reduction.
