This study identified best practices among WISEWOMAN projects and disseminated these practices for translation among all programs and populations.
The best practices identified in this study included successful recruitment methods, strategies for engaging program participants, delivering lifestyle interventions, facilitating and maintaining behavior change, and retaining participants in the WISEWOMAN program. This study influenced several projects to adopt some of the best practices as a way to improve their programs. We anticipate that the broader implementation of these best practices will enhance our program and help us achieve the greatest public health impact.
