The program is integrated into the University of Arizona, Family and Community Medicine clinic. The program provides participants with a six- week nutrition course with adapted curriculum from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP-ED) and adapted physical activity classes provided by the YMCA.
