Formative assessment through an adaptive community-based participatory research CBPR approach was conducted toward the development of a nutritional and physical activity DVD and clinician toolkit for a school-based health center SBHC weight management intervention. We first conducted parent and adolescent interviews on views and experiences about obesity while convening a community advisory council CAC recruited from two participating urban New Mexico high schools. Thematic findings from the interviews were analyzed with the CAC to develop culturally and developmentally appropriate intervention materials. The CAC and university-based research team reached consensus on the final content of nutrition and physical activity topics to produce a DVD and clinician toolkit through six monthly sessions. These materials used in the SBHC intervention resulted in a greater reduction of body mass index when compared to adolescents receiving standard care. Formative assessment using an adaptive CBPR approach resulted in the creation of culturally and age appropriate weight reduction materials that were acceptable to study participants. This trial is registered with ClinicalTrials.
