Diabetes Virtual Trek Prevention: Obesity and Diabetes Prevention Through Science Enrichment

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of a school-to-home education program for it's ability to increase knowledge about, and ability to prevent type two diabetes in children and parents.

The study involved pre and post testing of parent's knowledge and behaviors relating to the prevention of type two diabetes, before and after a school based intervention designed to encourage school to home communication. Parents/Guardians and children, grades 2-6, from schools with high Hispanic enrollment during the 2001-2005 school year were used for both comparison and intervention groups.
