Newsletter Intervention

Weeks 8 - 24


The newsletter intervention provides participants with two newsletters monthly for four months. These eight theory-based holistic wellness newsletters are expected to promote whole person wellness by incorporating information related to nutrition, mental health, and cognition, as well as at-home physical activity suggestions to reinforce movements performed during the onsite program.
During the newsletter intervention, the trainer-led program is not held, rather the on-site leader (another sustainable program element) is encouraged to continue the program and participants will self-report physical activity bimonthly using the Rapid Assessment of Physical Activity form.
