Enhanced Healthy Eating Lifestyle Program (Enhanced HELP)

Brief Description
Enhanced HELP seeks to expand on the basic HELP for overweight children and their families. It involves California Hospital Medical Center, Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, Huntington Memorial Hospital and NHF and is funded by the UniHealth Foundation. Enhanced HELP allows hospitals to maintain contact with families that have "graduated" from HELP by offering four additional workshops which focus on a particular season and the nutritional and physical activities challenges within it. As with HELP, NHF is evaluating Enhanced HELP by expanding and maintaining the web-based data collection and reporting system that allows users to generate real-time report.
