The American Heart Association has funded a 4-year clinical intervention that aims to reduce sitting time among Hispanic/Latina women, 55 years and older who are at increased risk of heart disease. The intervention intent to help Hispanic/Latina women understand when and where they sit most and help them to break up their sitting time. Women will be asked to wear a special device that will track their sitting time and they will meet with a health coach to set goals and plan to stand more throughout their day. Under supervision of the investigators and the project managers, the Research Assistant II will help with the data collection, recruitment, data entry, and other daily activities and procedures of the research study.
