|IMPACT (Ideas Moving Parents and Adolescents to Change Together) is a family-based research program that aims to help families learn about healthy eating, weight management, getting better sleep, managing stress, and staying active.
The program aims to help sixth grade students of the Cleveland Metropolitan School District improve eating habits, increase physical activity, get better sleep, and find healthy ways to deal with stress.
Students and families will be able to participate in cooking demos, informational sessions on nutrition and body image, physical activity, and healthy living. Through this project, students are being touched at the individual, family, and school level. The goal is to have a positive impact on the body weight and blood pressure of the students.
The study began enrolling students in the Spring of 2012.
