The purpose of this research study is to understand how a physical activity program for family members and friends can help improve their physical activity and possibly improve the symptoms of Hispanics/Latinos with osteoarthritis.
You and a family member or friend will be asked to take part in a physical activity program where you will support each other's activity. You will receive a Fitbit and a self-paced walking workbook, and a journal. You will complete surveys electronically at the beginning and end of the study. You'll also take notes about your experiences throughout the study in your journal. About a week after you finish the program, there will be a group meeting to talk about your experience. There is also an optional interview for participants who speak Spanish.
Information provided upon request, Fitbit and self paced walking workbook.
