Description of Collaborative Activity:

HEALTHY is a 3-year study in 42 middle schools to determine if changes in school food services and physical education classes, along with classroom activities to promote behavior change, lower risk factors for type 2 diabetes in youth at high risk for the disease. Some risk factors for type 2 diabetes are modifiable, such as overweight and obesity, inactivity, high blood pressure, large waist size, and high blood levels of sugar and insulin. Other risk factors are not modifiable, such as family history and race or ethnicity.
