Physical Activity in the Cambodian Community

PI: C.V. (Vicky) Taylor, MD, MPH

The overall goal of this project is to provide information about physical activity among adult Cambodian Americans that could be used to develop culturally and linguistically appropriate physical activity interventions. Our primary objectives are to provide qualitative data relevant to the promotion of physical activity among Cambodian Americans; and quantitative data about physical activity knowledge, beliefs, and practices, as well as correlates of physical activity among Cambodians in the US. A secondary objective is to assess the feasibility and acceptability of measuring actual physical activity in the Cambodian community.
