Weight Management in Rural Health Clinics

Weight Management in Rural Health Clinics

Rural health care providers will be trained to deliver the University of Kansas Weight Management Program (KWMP) through individual and group conference calls as well as through an enhanced version of usual care for individuals who are overweight and obese. If the phone interventions translate successfully, rural clinics will have one or more new evidence and cost based options to improve weight management for residents of rural areas. KWMP, which has been ongoing since 1986, is grounded in social cognitive theory and has consistently provided >10% weight loss at 6 months in a wide array of individuals.
