Experimental: Family-focused intervention arm
Family-focused intervention arm: Educational sessions will be provided to family pairs that include participants who are at-risk for type 2 diabetes or CVD and their co-participating family member.
Behavioral: Family-focused intervention arm
Family pairs including an individual family member at-risk for type 2 diabetes or CVD and a co-participating family member will be enrolled in the study. After completing baseline data they will be randomly selected to participate in one of the two study arms. For the family-focused arm, the family pair will attend 8 2-hour weekly educational sessions about type 2 diabetes and CVD risk reducing lifestyle behaviors. The sessions will be presented by community health workers (CHWs) in Spanish to groups of 5 to 6 family pairs. Following completion of the sessions, data will be collected from the family pairs. CHWs will call monthly to provide information and support through the end of the 12-month period at which time data will be collected from the family pairs.
