A three-year evaluation of the know your body program in Inner-City schoolchildren.
The impact of the Know Your Body (KYB) comprehensive school health education program was evaluated in a sample of first through sixth-grade students from New York City, using two analytic strategies: a longitudinal cohort and a « posttest only » cohort.
In both cohorts, program impact was examined between condition (i.e., KYB vs. no-treatment comparison group) as well as within condition (i.e., low, moderate, and high student exposure).
Students in the longitudinal cohort (n = 1,209) who were exposed to high implementation teachers had significantly (p <.05) lower total plasma cholesterol and systolic blood pressure at 3-year posttest than comparison students.
