Intervention Materials

In 2007, the New Leaf materials were updated to incorporate the latest U.S. federal guidelines on nutrition and exercise science.

In addition to nutrition, physical activity and tobacco cessation, the New Leaf program includes content on achieving a healthy weight, diabetes prevention and management, osteoporosis prevention, and dealing with stress and depression.  A New Leaf includes several different types of materials: risk assessments, tip sheets with behavior change suggestions, general information, an exercise module, and a recipe book.
