Community partners also provided insider knowledge of the rural African American faith culture to further adapt the intervention, including the addition of Bible studies and further Scriptures.
After Faith Task Force members said a broader focus on health would have more community appeal than an exclusive focus on weight loss, the Faith Task Force translated the intervention to emphasize healthy weight and related behaviors to prevent chronic disease.
