What we are studying
La Comunidad will look at the health effects of weight loss in Latino men and women who are overweight and are at risk for developing diabetes. Previous studies have shown that weight loss has many benefits, including preventing diabetes. Most of these studies have used professional staff, such as dietitians and doctors, and one-on-one counseling. La Comunidad will help us to evaluate the effects of a group-based weight loss program led by a member of the community on Latinos at risk for developing diabetes.
