PURPOSE: To test the role of financial incentives to motivate engagement in diabetes prevention programs (DPPs). DESIGN: Minnesota, Montana, and New York randomized 3 different approaches to providing incentives: incentivizing class attendance and weight loss (all states), class attendance only (NY), and weight loss only (NY).

PURPOSE: Understanding psychosocial factors in the context of lifestyle change is important to recognize distinctions in type 2 diabetes prevention behaviors. A relatively stable psychosocial feature, such as health-related self-concept (HRSC), may indicate factors that promote or repress positive health behaviors. The present study created a questionnaire specific to lifestyle change activities by modifying the Generalized Health-Related Self-Concept Questionnaire (G-HRSC). DESIGN: A modified lifestyle health-related self-concept (Lifestyle-HRSC) questionnaire was developed through creation of new items, context expert review of new items, and small and large sample test of new items...

Brita Roy, Carley Riley, Lindsay Sears, Elizabeth Y Rula
OBJECTIVES: To propose collective well-being as a holistic measure of the overall "health" of a community. To define collective well-being as a group-level construct measured across 5 domains (vitality, opportunity, connectedness, contribution, and inspiration) and introduce an actionable model that demonstrates how community characteristics affect collective well-being. To review the literature describing each domain's association with health outcomes and community characteristics' associations with collective well-being...

Jessica K Pepper, Ellen M Coats, James M Nonnemaker, Brett R Loomis
PURPOSE: More adolescents "vape" (use e-cigarettes and similar devices) than smoke, but little is known about how underage users obtain vaping devices. This knowledge could inform efforts to prevent youth access. DESIGN: Original cross-sectional survey with social media recruitment. SETTINGS: Online. PARTICIPANTS: A total of 1729 adolescents (2809 qualified on screener; completion rate 61.6%) aged 15 to 17 years who vaped in the past 30 days...

PURPOSE: We previously demonstrated that including walnuts in the diets of adults at risk for type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) led to improved overall diet quality. This report examines the specific changes in their nutrient intake. DESIGN: This was a randomized, controlled, modified Latin square parallel design trial with 2 treatment arms. Participants were randomized to walnut intake with, or without, dietary advice to regulate caloric intake. Within each treatment arm, they were further randomized to one of 2 sequence permutations (walnut-included/walnut-excluded or walnut-excluded/walnut-included diet), with a 3-month washout between treatment phases...

Paul Terry
Recent data on our progress in workplace-based health promotion should keep us grounded as we consider whether we are on track to planned destinations. One recent survey suggests employees view worksite wellness as a valuable employee benefit but another survey suggests employees are dissatisfied with their employers' wellness offerings. What explains these differences? Is the program driven by a plan? Is the plan relevant to the company's priorities? Was the plan developed using participatory planning principles?" A participant centered health promotion initiative means deciding a destination and planning how to get there alongside those you aspire to serve...
