CBH-CDTR/SDBA Webinar -- Last on the list: The multiple caregiver role and behavior change for weight control among Black women
Disparities in obesity prevalence and weight loss treatment affecting Black women persist. This is a barrier to realizing improved health risk and outcomes in weight-related conditions like type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Black women’s provision of care to family and non-kin networks may be a barrier to achieving weight control. Examining the multiple caregiver role, a sociocultural factor, among Black women engaged in a behavioral weight loss intervention may indicate the role of such context on behavior change and weight. In this talk, Dr. Blackman Carr will discuss her work and insights surrounding Black women’s caregiving on dietary and physical activity behaviors and weight while pursuing weight loss. The webinar will also indicate potential directions for future efforts to address obesity and improve weight loss in treatment-seeking Black women.
