Introduction

The National Kidney Foundation (NKF) is a nonprofit organization that has been in
operation for decades. Its early mission of raising public awareness about kidney disease has
evolved to include such things as intervention, prevention, early detection and patient services
and support. One of the main areas of focus in the prevention of kidney disease is raising
awareness of the two main causes of the disease, these are diabetes and hypertension. The rate at
which these illnesses tend to occur in certain ethnic groups and communities, may have a
negative impact on measurement of an intervention when compared to the nations population as
a whole.
Research has shown that both diabetes and hypertension tend to occur at much higher
rates for many African and Hispanic Americans. Yet in many cases both of these illnesses can be
prevented by proper nutrition education and physical activity. This combined with the nationwide
epidemic of childhood obesity and the increase of children presenting with type 2 diabetes has
motivated the NKF to initiate a variety of childhood health education and health behavior change
interventions. One of these intervention is geared toward adolescents in the 4th, 5th and 6th grade
currently living in communities most in need. It is titled Healthy Kids and Kidneys and it is
administered in many public schools throughout the Detroit metropolitan area. It is focused on
the development of healthier eating habits, and increasing physical activity.
The following measurement tool I am attempting to create is both a pre and post survey.
Almost all the questions asked in both pre and post surveys would be the same (with the
exception of the one satisfaction question found in the post survey) so as to determine a level of
change, if any.
