• School program evaluated intensively .. improved nutrition but overweight &
  obesity continue to rise
• Toddlers eating environments
• Process evaluations (teachers, interventions, nutritional habits of normal and
  overweight children)
• Stable incidence and prevalence type 2 diabetes in adults 1986-2003

•   Positive ecological changes
•   Enhanced understanding of diabetes
•   KSDPP as case study
•   Capacity building for many roles (includes 2 masters and
          one PhD, KSDPP staff in new positions,

•   CAB members dedication as change agents

•   Strong partnership with Code of Research Ethics
•   Mutual respect
•   combining scientific rigor with community relevance

External factors
•   academic expertise

•   funding
•   external recognition
•   ongoing evaluation & dissemination
     increases translational science

•   Time, time, time……….
•   Coping with funding ‘bumps’
•   Competing community issues
•   Different timelines for intervention and research
•   Researcher and community turnover
      Can the democratic ideal of
 participatory research be achieved?
     Cross sectional data collected from partners 1996, 1999 and 2004 for perceived
     level of influence over different aspects of KSDPP. In 2004 overall perceived
     ownership was by KSDPP Community Advisory Board.

     “KSDPP with a model of community-directed research
     suggests that equitable participation -
     as distinct from democratic or equal participation -
     is reflected by indigenous community partners exerting
     greater influence than academic partners in decision making.”
                   (and researchers support this model)

      What supports successful
participatory research partnerships?
                        A focused literature review

•   steering or advisory committee
•   researchers working or volunteering in community
•   utilizing pre-existing community resources
•   dissemination of results through community mechanisms
    and meetings
