Inactivity clinical trials at UCSD
1 in progress, 1 open to new patients
open to eligible females ages 18–65
The overall goals of this renewal are to replicate the findings of Seamos Saludables in Latina women, increase the effectiveness of the intervention, and measure intervention-related changes in clinical biomarkers. We will enhance the existing intervention by incorporating participant feedback (desire for greater interactivity and accountability), further targeting Social Cognitive Theory (SCT) constructs that were not influenced overall by the original intervention yet improved amongst our most successful participants (social support, outcome expectancies), and responding to changing trends and technology use in Latinos. We will conduct a clinical trial among Latina women in California randomized to either 1) the original Seamos Saludables tailored print only intervention or 2) a theory and text messaging-enhanced interactive technology based version of the Seamos Saludables intervention. We will also measure changes in cardiovascular and metabolic biomarkers (e.g., HbA1c, and LDL) to assess potential clinical impact of the intervention.
