Community Mosaic: Finding Ways to Eat More Healthfully in a Low-Income African American Community
MetadataShow full item record
Community Mosaic is a system to promote healthy eating amongst low-income African American people. This thesis analyzes a study I conducted that encourages people to talk about what they think are the barriers against as well as the resources for trying to eat healthfully. The results of this study will be useful for the low income African American community as well as the HCI (Human Computer Interaction) community. More specifically, the results will facilitate towards finding ways to eat more healthily due to the correct understanding of the barriers against and available resources for eating healthfully in a community. The African American community is known to have more diet-related health problems than other ethnic communities in the US; by understanding the reasons behind these problems the goal is to help minimize them.
