The Empowered Eat Healthy-Be Active Program, implemented by peer educators, seeks to improve the health of the minority population by promoting a healthier lifestyle for obese adults. African American adults, 18 and older, learn about the importance of modifying cultural eating behaviours. Sessions are offered in local communities once a week for one hour for four to six weeks.
