Baskets, food models, and food items will be used for demonstration and games in the Smart Eating and Fueling Up on a Busy Schedule sessions. Pens will be needed for activities and pre-/post-tests and evaluations. Trail-mix will be given as a prize at the completion of the Fueling Up on a Busy Schedule session. A white board and markers will be used at the Smart Eating session. Lastly, travel expenses will include gas cost to and from sessions for each educator. If awarded a grant, funds will be set aside to present a research poster at the annual Food and Nutrition Conference and Expo. Also, the remaining funds from the grant would be utilized to award those successfully completing the program with a gift certificate to Whole Foods, water bottles, a lunchbox, skincare products, and a spa giftcard. These prizes would help the participants, who are busy college students, be able to more easily adopt the behavior changes empasized in this program. Potential funding sources write a summary of the type of funding that is required to achieve the goals and objectives of your project Walgreens aims to help the connection between strong communities and good businesses in order to increase the quality of life in the communities in which Walgreens serves. Walgreens offers opportunities for organizations to receive funding who focus on improving access to health and wellness in their community along with other focus areas. The major focus of Walgreens funding goes to programs that focus on health and the health needs of patients who use Walgreens Pharmacies (Walgreens Contributions Guidelines, nd). In 2012, General Mills provided $6,591,936 as grants related to hunger and nutrition wellness, and in 2013, General Mills distributed foundation grants that totaled more than $27.6 million.

provides funding for communities to support hunger and nutrition wellness related initiatives as well as education programs (General Mills Foundation, nd). CSX Corporation is a transportation supplier who has a major market in Mississippi along the Mississippi River. Because they reach a market in Mississippi, they provide funding support for four focus areas: safety, environment, wellness, and community. A wellness grant from CSX could be used to implement the current community program. The grants awarded range from $250 to $50,000 each year. Grants do not have a deadline but can only be applied for once each year (Our Giving Process, nd). PepsiCo is a funding source that provides a single $5,000 grant awarded to encourage and recognize approaches to promote healthy living through nutrition and physical activity. This healthy promotion community program targets young dancers to live a healthy lifestyle through proper nutrition and physical activity; therefore, this potential funding source would be a great option. The LuLu G. Graves Nutrition Education Award is a $500 award granted to groups volunteering to provide nutrition education sessions. Since this is a grant for volunteers it would not provide enough money for the educators but would provide money for education session materials (The Academy of Nutriiton and Dietetics, 2014) Walmart has a State Giving Program that provides $25,000 to $250,000 for organizations that create opportunities for community members to live a healthier and better lifestyle. Walmarts focus is on reducing food insecurity but also on educating community members on how to choose healthy foods and live a healthy lifestyle (State Giving Guidelines, nd).

Executive Summary
250-300 word limit.

Healthy Living for High Performance is a program that provides education and promotes health to college athletes. The participants for the pilot program will be The University of Southern Mississippis Dixie Darlings Dance Team. The program consists of four education sessions tailored especially to the Dixie Darlings that will increase the teams knowledge about healthy lifestyles for college athletes. Education sessions include basic nutrition for female college dancers, proper hydration, eating a balanced diet on a busy schedule, and healthy lifestyle strategies, including skin care, stress management, and how to avoid disordered eating patterns. The program can be reproduced for a variety of different athletic groups.

Hypothesis
Must be clearly stated and testable.

At the end of the program, participants will demonstrate knowledge of basic nutrition by identifying macronutrients and sources. In addition, 80% of participants will be able to state the amount of water needed to stay hydrated on a practice day and a game day, and participants will drink an adequate amount of water each day based on self reported intake. Also, 80% of participants will be able to plan out a day of quick, nutrient-dense meals and snacks for a busy school day or game day, and participants will report consumption of nutrient-dense meals and snacks for a busy school day or game day. Lastly, 80% of participants will list one way in which they can personally manage stress, will be able to list one way to provide proper skin care, will understand the dangers of disordered eating patterns, and will be able to identify at least one way to avoid disordered eating patterns. Target Audience
Include number of participants, race, gender and age.

The target audience includes approximately 15-20 Caucasian and African American female members of The Univeristy of Southern Mississippi Dixie Darlings Dance Team.

Rationale for Program & Target Audience


Include poverty level and prevalence of obesity.

The program participants belong to lower, middle, and upper social classes and reside in Southern Mississippi, which at 34.9% is considered the most obese state in the nation according to the CDC. In addition to residing in the most obese state in the nation, the athletic group has other nutritional concerns as well. Current literature shows that college athletes, specifically dancers, have increased nutrition related needs, including calorie and protein needs as well as education needs on how to ensure a healthy lifestyle. Dancers are also at risk for disordered eating behaviors, decreased bone density, low body mass, and amenorrhea. Research suggests that nutrition education interventions are beneficial in this population, thus the rationale for this program is to improve the .

Program Content and Structure The overall program is titled, Healthy Living for High Performance. The program will be split into four education sessions. The lesson plans are titled Smart Eating, Hydration 101, Fueling Up on a Busy Schedule, and Skin Care, Stress Management, and Eating Disorders. Each session will be approximately 10-15 minutes in length. In session one, students will be divided into 3 groups. The presenter will write carbohydrate, protein, and Academy Foundation PepsiCo Healthy Lifestyle Innovation Research Grant

HATTIESBURG HPE

fat on a white board as headings. Each group will be given a different colored marker. Each marker will represent a fat, protein, or carbohydrate. The presenter will announce several healthy food options of each macronutrient for the participants. Brown rice, sweet potato, wheat bread, banana, and green beans will be written under the carbohydrate heading. Avocado, olive oil, and peanut butter will be written under the fat heading. Fish, chicken, turkey, lean beef will be written under the protein heading. The participants will be asked, What are some healthy carbohydrates, protein, and fats that you can incorporate into your diet? After session one, the participants will be able to identify macronutrients and which foods are good sources. The participants will state one personal goal for improving dietary intake. In session two, groups of cups will be placed in the front of the room. One will contain 8 cups, one with 12 cups, and one with 14 cups. The participants will be asked, If these cups were filled with water, which group would be adequate for a days intake on a game day? They will also be asked, Which one would be adequate for a days intake on a nongame day? The correct answer for question one is 14 cups. The correct answer for question two is 12 cups. In addition, discussion will be led to ask the question, What are some ways to make sure you have enough water or drinks available for when you are thirsty on game and nongame days? After the session, the participants will be able list the amount of water needed to stay hydrated on game and nongame days. The participants will be able to list 3 benefits of staying hydrated. The participants will intake the adequate amounts of water each day by the next session. In session three, the importance of properly fueling for athletic performance and tips on how to plan meals for a busy schedule will be quickly discussed. Questions will be asked to encourage group participation, such as Do you ever feel that you dont perform as well when you have not eaten well during game days? and What are some ideas that you all have for making sure you fuel your body properly on busy days? The participants will then be divided into two teams to play the Meal Planning in a Hurry game. Each group will have a basket food items, including fruit, snack bars, peanut butter, nuts, etc. The teams will race to plan three nutrient-dense snack/meal options for a busy game day or school day. The team that finishes first will win a prize. After the game, the participants will be asked to list three nutrient-dense meal/snack options for a busy school day or game day. The participants will also be asked to keep a log of the food and beverages they consume on at least one busy school day or game day, which will be turned in at the following session. After the session, the participants will be able to list three quick, nutrient-dense meal and snack options for a busy school day or game day after the session. The participants will report consumption of nutrient-dense meals and snacks for a busy school day or game day by the next session as evidenced by a food journal. In session four, different skin care products and SPF ranges will be discussed. The participants will be placed into two groups and given a packet of different skin care product/SPF range pictures. Both groups will have to divide the skin care products into the correct categories of normal, oily, combination, and SPF range. The first group to place all the pictures into the correct category is the declared winning team. The purpose of this activity is to expose the participants to different skin care products available and increase awareness of skin care. After the session, the participants will be able to list one way to personally manage stress. The participants will be able to list one way to apply proper skin care. The participants will be able to list a danger of disordered eating, and one way to prevent an eating disorder.

Step 7: Evaluate the Intervention What were your original goals and objectives for your education session?
Goal 1 Objective 1a. Objective 1b. Objective 1c. Goal 2 Objective 2a. Increase knowledge and intake of nutrient-dense food choices among the Dixie Darlings. At the end of the session, 90% of participants will be able to list one nutrient-dense food choice for each meal time. At the end of the session, 90% of participants will state one personal goal for increasing nutrient-dense food consumption. At the follow up session, 75% of participants will report an increase in nutrient-dense foods. Increase knowledge of how to stay adequately hydrated on regular and game days among the Dixie Darlings. At the end of the session, 80% of participants will be able to state the amount of water needed to stay hydrated on a practice day and a game day. By the next session, 80% of participants will be drinking an adequate amount of water each day based on self reported intake.

Briefly describe how you used these to develop your intervention evaluation. The goals and objectives for the education sessions were used to develop evaluation tools in order to determine the success of each intervention. For each goal, at

HATTIESBURG HPE two to three measurable objectives were developed. An assessment tool was created to evaluate objective and to determine the success of each intervention. The assessment tools are discussed in the table below. Actual data collection:
What data did you actually monitor as part of the intervention? Participants knowledge of quick, nutrient-dense meals and snacks. Participants intake of quick, nutrient-dense meals and snacks. How was the data collected? You MUST provide copies of the actual data collection instruments/evaluation forms.

Participants knowledge of the amount of water needed each day.

Post assessment form from Hydration 101.

Participants intake of water or other beverages (other than soda or sweetened beverages) Participants knowledge of different eating disorders, the dangers of eating disorders, and knowledge of ways to avoid, prevent, or treat an eating disorder Participants knowledge of macronutrients (fat, protein, and carbohydrates)

Hydration log distributed after Hydration 101.

What were the Results (please attach copies of the actual data that were collected)? Descriptive data (i.e. means, standard deviations, percentages, etc.) 15 of 15 participants (100%) were able to list three nutrient-dense foods and snacks that they will fit into their busy day. 8 of 15 participants (53%) returned the meal log. 6 of 8 participants (75%) ate at least three times per day. 5 of 8 participants (62.5%) recorded at least two balanced nutrient-dense foods and snacks throughout their day. 4 of 4 participants (100%) were able to list the number of cups of water needed for a game day and a non-game day. In addition 75% of participants were able to list two ways to increase hydration throughout a busy day. 4 of 4 participants (100%) consumed an adequate amount of water on their hydration log.

Post-assessment test from Dangers of Eating Disorders

3 of 4 participants (75%) were able to determine the types of eating disorders. 3 of 4 (75%) were able to determine the dangers of eating disorders. 4 of 4 (100%) were able to list two ways to avoid, prevent, or treat an eating disorder. 15 out of 15 participants (100%) were able to list 2 healthy food sources of each macronutrient that they could incorporate into their diet.

Post-assessment from Smart Eating

Discussion of Results (Interpretation of the results, explanation of outcomes, the relationship between the findings and the program/learner objectives and PES statements, etc) : The first goal of the HPE program was to increase knowledge of healthy food sources of each macronutrient that the participants could incorporate into their diet. This goal, using the Smart Eating lesson plan, addressed basic nutrition information with the

HATTIESBURG HPE Dixie Darlings. This session was a success as evidenced by the post-assessment. In addition objectives 1a and 1b were met according to the posttest results. Goal 1c appeared to not be met when the logs which were returned after the Fueling Up on a Busy Schedule session was completed. The logs indicated that 62.5% of participants

33

recorded at least two balanced nutrient-dense foods and snacks throughout the day. This session addressed the PES statement, Increased energy needs RT physical activity requirements of the Dixie Darlings AEB underweight (BMI<18.5), team practice every day for 2-3hrs as well as required work out hours of 2.5-3hrs per week. The second goal of the HPE program was to increase knowledge of how to stay adequately hydrated on regular and game days among the Dixie Darlings. This goal was targeted using the Hydration 101 education session, which addressed the hydration needs of athletes and tips to stay hydrated on a busy schedule. The session was a success according to the post test and hydration log results; therefore, objectives 2a and 2b were met. The PES statement, Excessive physical activity RT Dixie Darling practice 5 days each week in addition to weekly gym hour requirements AEB low body weight averages in related literature was addressed as this goal was accomplished, as hydration needs are a factor of physical activity. The third goal of the HPE program was to increase knowledge and intake of nutrient-dense snacks and quick meals for a busy schedule in order to increase caloric intake among the Dixie Darlings. This goal was important in addressing the Dixie Darlings increased energy needs and inadequate energy intake. The Fueling Up on a Busy Schedule session was planned to target Goal 3. Overall, the Fueling Up on a Busy Schedule session was a success. All 15 participants (100%) were able to list three

HATTIESBURG HPE nutrient-dense foods and snacks that they will fit into their busy day after the session.

34

Therefore, Objective 3a was met. In addition, Objective 3b was also overall successful as the majority of participants completing the meal log (75%) reported an intake of at least three meals per day. However, it is important to note that only 63% of participants reported consuming at least two balanced, energy-dense meals per day. This session addressed the PES statement, Inadequate energy intake RT busy and stressful lifestyle that leave little time for food consumption AEB food avoidance and lack of time to consume adequate meals. The fourth goal of the HPE program was to increase participants knowledge of different eating disorders, the dangers of eating disorders, and ways to avoid, prevent, or treat an eating disorder among the Dixie Darlings. This goal was important in addressing to the Dixie Darlings because the literature reviewed indicated that this population has a high prevalence of disordered eating. The Dangers of Disordered Eating session was planned to target Goal 4. Overall, the session was successful. All four of the participants (100%) were able to list two ways to avoid, prevent, or treat an eating disorder. Most of the participants (75%) were able to identify the types of eating disorders correctly and identify the dangers of eating disorders correctly. Out of the three goals set for this program only 4b was met because 100% of participants were able to list ways to prevent, avoid, or treat eating disorders. The sample size was very small for this particular education session, on the other two assessment questions three out of four were able to identify the answers correctly, which was 75% and the goal aimed for 80%. Conclusion

Overall, this program was successful. The results from the education sessions and food and hydration logs showed that the participants were successfully able to put the healthy behaviors that they learned during the education session into practice. In addition to applying healthy eating behaviors the participants were also able to identify ways to prevent, avoid, or seek treatment for disordered eating patterns. However, it was noted during the Smart Eating lesson plan that the participants had very little nutrition knowledge as evidenced by them having difficulty identifying food sources of carbohydrates. It may be beneficial to first educate the participants on basic nutrition information. In the future, this program could be conducted again on a similar population with the same needs. In addition, the program could include more than four sessions to increase the amount of knowledge and behavior changes that could be seen in the participants. One recommendation would be to have the logs in an electronic version. The participants may be more receptive to inputting a log on their phone or computer and not having to do it with a paper version. This method could also improve the accuracy of the logs as participants would have the logs more readily available if they were on their phones or computers. A second recommendation is to have the participants complete the logs for more than one day as to get a more accurate representation of usual intake. In addition, future participants would benefit from receiving feedback on their meal logs. Having more than four sessions would allow the presenters time to give feedback and more individuals recommendations. Another recommendation is to schedule the sessions at a separate time than the Dixie Darling practice time. Although this was convenient time for the participants, they

HATTIESBURG HPE may be more willing to participate in a longer session if it was scheduled individually. This way, the participation could be tracked more carefully, and participants may be

36

more willing to complete the entire program. In the current program, a different number of participants were present for each day the sessions were presented.
