Project Title: Healthy Homes/Healthy Families (HH/HF)
Description: The Emory Prevention Research Center, in collaboration with community partners in rural southwest Georgia and a regional 2-1-1 system, will conduct a hybrid effectiveness-implementation trial to rigorously assess: a) the impact of a telephone-based home food environment intervention on weight-related dietary behaviors among 2-1-1 callers, b) a range of implementation outcomes, c) cost-effectiveness and scale-up feasibility of an intervention delivery model to reach low-income populations through a regional 2-1-1 system, and d) evaluate a translation support system for dissemination of HH/HF through 2-1-1 systems.
