Title: Community Health Opportunities Organized with Schools at the Epicenter (CHOOSE)
Status: Current
Topic: Community;Nutrition / Diet;Physical Activity;School-based
Funding Source: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
Funding Period: 2014-2019
Study Design: Varies, depending on individual interventions to be conducted as part of CHOOSE
Purpose:

CHOOSE is the Yale-Griffin PRC’s core research project during our current 5-year cycle (2014-2019) of funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).  The purpose is to use a multi-level approach in schools and their respective communities to improve diet quality and physical activity in children and adults.

Further Study Details:

CHOOSE will compare the impact of 4 levels of interventions in 5 communities, with school districts serving as epicenters, and expanding within/beyond schools to other “portals” in their respective communities. Potential portals include schools, worksites, supermarkets, medical offices, and faith-based or community organizations. The Valley Initiative to Advance Health and Learning in Schools (VITAHLS), is one component of CHOOSE.  Our target communities include Ansonia, Derby, Seymour, and Shelton, CT, whose school districts have been involved since 2011 in the VITAHLS initiative, along with the Naugatuck, CT community, which has recently joined VITAHLS and is now serving as a control/delayed intervention site. 

Eligibility: Varies, depending on individual interventions conducted as part of CHOOSE.
Evaluation: Varies, depending on individual interventions conducted as part of CHOOSE
