Summary

Racial and ethnic minorities continue to experience significant disparities in quality and access to physician counseling about lifestyle health behavior change. This study focuses on the identification of evidence-based strategies for lifestyle modification and health behavior counseling in primary care. Through this, we will be able to work collaboratively with investigators, health care providers and patients to identify priorities and preferences of healthcare providers and patients to develop practice-based interventions that will effectively address these disparities in primary care settings.
