Summary

This trial will test if mobile health technology can help African American women exercise more and reduce heart disease risk.

Who is the study for?
This trial is for African American women aged 21-75 who are overweight or obese, live in specific areas near Washington, DC, and have a compatible smartphone. They must be able to consent and willing to use the app and wear a physical activity device. Pregnant women or those with certain medical conditions like heart disease can't join.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The study tests if mobile health technology like apps, wearable devices, and Bluetooth-enabled health monitors can help increase physical activity to reduce obesity and improve cardiovascular health among participants living in resource-limited neighborhoods.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
Since this trial involves non-invasive technology such as mobile apps and wearable devices rather than medication, traditional side effects are not expected. However, there may be privacy concerns regarding data collection or potential stress from constant health monitoring.

Treatment Details

Study Objectives

Outcome measures can provide a clearer picture of what you can expect from a treatment.
Primary outcome measures
The difference in physical activity (PA) change between an adaptive intervention with remote coaching tailored to neighborhood resources (referred to as tailored-to-place coaching) versus beginning w/ standard remote coaching
Secondary outcome measures
Determine which embedded adaptive interventions produce the largest PA increase
Examine the effect of an adaptive community-based intervention targeting Physical Activity on Cardiovascular health measures
Examine the feasibility of incorporating methods for remote capture of CV health measures
