Health Equity Considerations
VERB™ Scorecard is designed to increase activity levels of tweens (9-13 year olds) through a community-wide campaign effort. This includes promoting physical activity opportunities and utilizing a “passport” (scorecard) system of tracking physical activity during a designated time period. VERB™ Scorecard was evaluated in a community-wide pilot project in Lexington–Fayette County, Kentucky. Since the conclusion of the pilot study, VERB™ Scorecard has been adopted in other communities in Kentucky and in other states, each project adapting it to their local data, resources and needs.
Print materials are an important part of the intervention and new adopters will need to culturally adapt them and translate them into Spanish or other languages.
