The purpose

In this study the investigators are specifically targeting Latina women because they are more likely to be inactive and, therefore, are at higher risk for developing chronic conditions like obesity, diabetes, or cardiovascular disease. Through focus groups and cognitive interviews with Latinas in the Providence area, the investigators have modified our print-based intervention, already tested and proven to be effective in English-speaking communities, to be culturally and linguistically appropriate for the Latina community. The objective of Seamos Saludables is to determine whether this culturally tailored print intervention will produce greater increases in physical activity levels among Latina women than a program focused on general health topics. Participants are randomly assigned to one of two groups (exercise and general wellness) and attend 4 clinic visits to complete baseline and follow-up assessments. The investigators hypothesize that at the end of treatment, intervention participants will report significantly more minutes of at least moderate intensity physical activity per week than the wellness contact control participants.
