Course Description: Approximately 83% of Hispanic men of Mexican origin are overweight or obese, which increases the risk of chronic disease and all-cause mortality. Physical activity (PA) may be an important strategy for Hispanic men in reducing incidence and risk factors of lifestyle diseases. The study engaged Spanish-speaking; Hispanic men of Mexican origin with overweight/obesity to examine perspectives of health behaviors related to PA. Researchers found strategies to improve PA interventions including accurately accounting for current PA levels of participants, considerations of family dynamics that influence PA-based behavior change, and considerations of economic and geographical constraints that can be remediated.  

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify the purpose of the study and the methods related to PA and Hispanic men’s health as examined in the article
  2. Analyze the data by exploring the statistical tests used in conjunction with the discussed findings
  3. Integrate the study limitations with the identified areas of future research
