Clinical Trial Description

This study's aims are: AIM 1: To examine the relative efficacy of Familias Unidas, extended to target obesity, in increasing physical activity and improving the quality of dietary intake among overweight Hispanic youth and AIM 2: To examine whether and to what extent family functioning partially mediates the effects of Familias Unidas on physical activity and quality of dietary intake.

H1: Familias Unidas will be efficacious, compared to Community Practice, in increasing Hispanic youth's past moderate to vigorous physical activity over time.

H2: Familias Unidas will be efficacious, compared to Community Practice, in improving Hispanic youth's past quality dietary intake (defined as decreases in dietary intakes of sugar-sweetened beverages, fast foods, and increases in dietary intakes of fresh fruits and vegetables) over time.

H3: Familias Unidas' effects on youth's past day moderate to vigorous physical activity and youth's past quality dietary intake will be partially mediated by changes in family functioning over time. ;
