Description

Summary

The prevalence of metabolic syndrome (MetS) is a health concern among Asians. Growing evidence indicates that Korean Americans had higher MetS prevalence compared to non-Hispanic Whites, but a culturally and linguistically appropriate lifestyle intervention has not been developed for Korean American middle-aged and older women. Thus, the investigators propose to develop a 4-week lifestyle intervention (Women's Active Living for Koreans (WALK) Study) to increase physical activity (PA) and reduce sedentary behavior for Korean American women.
