Colorado may be the state with the lowest percentage of the population that is obese, but we aren't resting on that fact. CRISP is investigating methods to prevent obesity across the population.
One current CRISP study extends an established and well tested Denver Health patient navigators (PN) program to a new domain - obesity. Serving culturally competent/concordant intermediaries between health care providers and Denver's most vulnerable communities, PNs have extensive experience with individuals around adult chronic diseases. That model will be extended to include low-income families with obese children, then intended PN impact would be on multiple extended family members.
