SCALE: Small Changes & Lasting EffectsShare
SCALE is a collaborative project between Weill and Ithaca-based investigators to develop innovative weight loss interventions based on the “small change” approach to increasing physical activity and modifying dietary behavior. The project is funded by the National Heart Lung and Blood Institute of NIH. The interventions are designed to address overweight and obesity among racial and ethnic minorities where the conditions are more prevalent and where existing weight loss interventions have not been generally effective. The project is piloting intervention trials in Harlem and the South Bronx.
