Take Control is an 8 session chronic disease prevention program that provides strategies to help adults manage their health. It informs, empowers, and motivates participants to change their eating and physical activity patterns. The program provides opportunities for participants to track their goals and progress toward healthy eating and physical activity behaviors. Each 1-hour session contains a basic cooking demonstration of a healthy recipe. The recipes and nutrition handouts are provided to program participants. Evaluation of the program is conducted via a pre- and post-behavior survey.

The Eat Smart, Move More, Take Control curriculum was developed by Linda Minges, MPH, RD, LDN, Nicolle Miller, MS, MPH, RD, Carolyn Dunn, Ph.D., RD, Lindsay Goolsby, MS, RD, and Gretchen Hofing, MPH, RD.
