Engaging Communities to Enhance Physical Activity Among Urban Youth
IGNITE, a multiyear, multistate USDA grant-funded project, focused on preventing obesity among youth in limited-income neighborhoods. One focus is to test strategies to help overcome barriers to physical activity. Assessments suggested several barriers to physical activity and provided valuable information for improving adolescent physical activity behavior.
