New Protocol Publication – Aim2Be


We are thrilled to share that the protocol for our our study titled “Does integration of health coaches improve adherence to an e-health lifestyle and behavioural intervention? A randomized controlled trial of LiGHT (Living Green, Healthy, and Thrifty)” now known as Aim2Be has been published in BMC Trials!

The publication, led by Louise Mâsse, describes the approach the team will use to test the efficacy of Aim2Be, a gamified app based on behavior change theory with health coaching to improve weight outcomes and lifestyle behaviors among children 10- to 17-years old with overweight or obesity versus their peers randomized into a waitlist control condition.

Other team members on this work include Jill Hamilton, Josephine Ho, Annick Buchholz, Katherine Morrison, and Geoff Ball.

Great work, team!
