A New Leaf... Choices for Healthy Living (PDF, 6.74 KB) is a structured nutrition, physical activity, and smoking cessation assessment and intervention program for cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk reduction among low-income individuals residing in the southeastern United States. A New Leaf may be used as a self-help packet or with groups. The WISEWOMAN project uses A New Leaf…Choices for Healthy Living as the primary behavioral intervention for assessment and counseling. Providers can also access the Health Counselors Instructions for A New Leaf.
Web-based New Leaf Assessments and tip sheets are available for WISEWOMAN participants to take online. If women have access to a computer, they can take one, two or all of the assessments. Women can assess their eating and activity and the computer will generate a personal score for them. Assessments can be taken at baseline and then again at rescreening to assess changes in lifestyle behavior.
New Leaf materials are in PDF format and may be downloaded and saved from this site. The materials should not be modified without express written permission in advance from the UNC Center for Health Promotion and Disease Prevention (HPDP). If you wish to modify or adapt A New Leaf for your context, UNC HPDP and the Center TRT will provide technical assistance for cultural/regional adaptations.
N.C. BCCCP sponsored a series of cultural competency webcasts in 2009 for BCCCP/WISEWOMAN providers and other healthcare professionals. These webcasts focused on providing an understanding of the following, within three special population groups – American Indians, Latinos, and African Americans:
- beliefs, values, traditions and practices of a culture;
- culturally defined, health-related needs of individuals, families and communities;
- culturally-based belief systems of the etiology of illness and disease and those related to health and healing; and
- attitudes toward seeking help from health care providers.
These three population groups continue to experience health disparities surrounding breast and cervical cancer and cardiovascular disease, as well as other health issues.
Latino American Webcast - April 30, 2009 (Dr. Rosa Solazano- Duke School of Nursing)
