Evaluation of a culturally-adapted lifestyle intervention to treat elevated cardiometabolic risk of Latino adults in primary care (Vida Sana): a randomized controlled trial.
The authors discussed the 5-year Vida Sana study, which tests a culturally adapted and technology-enhanced group-based Diabetes Prevention Program intervention in a randomized controlled trial with overweight/obese Latino adults who have metabolic syndrome and/or pre-diabetes. The main goal was to determine the effectiveness of the intervention. The authors hypothesized that the intervention will lead to a greater mean reduction in weight at 24 months vs. usual care.
