Family Wisdom Research Project

Funded by Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI), this project is using peer-led learning to identify approaches to improve healthy weight for children in American Indian and Spanish-speaking communities in Washington and Idaho. The information gleaned from these communities about effective education in healthy eating and exercise will lead to the creation of comparative effectiveness research (CER) questions that can be useful in future research. The research partners include community members, research faculty at the University of New Mexico, family leaders in Washington and Idaho, and pediatric providers.
