[Health for You and Your Family]

Welcome to the project website

The long-term goal of Salud Para Usted y Su Familia [Health for You and Your Family] (SPUSF) is to reduce the incidence of overweight and obesity among Mexican-heritage children from limited-resource colonias/neighborhoods along the Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas borders with Mexico through a Promotora-led, family-based obesity prevention program that integrates research, education, and extension to target food and beverage consumption, physical activity, and screen-time by changing individual and family behaviors and the home environment in a coordinated manner.
