BodyWorks

 

 



 

 

BodyWorks is a program designed to help parents and caregivers of girls ages 9 to 13 improve family eating and activity habits. Using the BodyWorks Toolkit, the program focuses on parents as role models and provides them with hands-on tools to make small, specific behavior changes to prevent obesity and help maintain a healthy weight.

The BodyWorks program uses a train-the-trainer model to distribute the Toolkit through community-based organizations, state health agencies, non-profit organizations, health clinics, hospitals and health care systems. The program includes one six-hour training module for trainers and ten 90-minute weekly sessions for parents and caregivers.

The Office on Women's Health, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, developed BodyWorks following two years of formative research.
