The training provided an opportunity for health centers to learn from evidence-based models for patient engagement that include nutrition advice and physical activity, all powered by behavior change techniques. Just in case you missed our earlier edition, MEND stands for Mind, Exercise, Nutrition, Do It! The program objective is to improve the health outcomes of obese children. CHCs will implement the MEND 7-13 Program, a comprehensive, family-based program that helps overweight or obese children aged 7-13 years improve their health, fitness and self-esteem. Participating FQHCs are Aaron E. Henry Community Health Services Center, Delta Health Center, G.A. Carmichael Family Health Center, and Greater Meridian Health Clinic. The health centers will work with 120 children and their families to implement the program over the next several months with published results forthcoming.
