Fresh StartProject Title: Fresh Start
The overall goal of this project is to develop and implement a culturally- and literacy-sensitive intervention for postpartum weight loss among low-income women using storytelling. Fresh Start will include a storytelling component that will be introduced in each session to facilitate discussion. The story tellers will be WIC clients who will share their personal and socio-cultural experiences with postpartum weight loss with regard to weight loss related knowledge/beliefs, self-efficacy and outcome expectation.
