MY LA

(Minority Youth Leaders in Action)
PI: Lourdes Baezconde-Garbanati

The MY LA study is a two-pronged intervention seeking to engage Latino and African-American youth in community action for obesity prevention.

Utilizing a 5-day youth leadership and empowerment camp, followed by an urban focused 7-month community action program, MY LA seeks to empower youth to advocate for community improvements in access to healthy food and physical activity.
