Study: Healthy Lifestyle After Traumatic Brain Injury

Lifestyle Intervention for People Following Traumatic Brain Injury

  • Are you interested in losing weight and having a healthier lifestyle?
  • Do you have a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) that happened more than 6 months ago?
  • Are you between the ages of 18 and 64 years?
What is this study about?
  • Sponsored by the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR), researchers at Baylor Scott & White Institute for Rehabilitation (BSWIR) are looking to compare the effectiveness of a healthy lifestyle intervention called Group Lifestyle Balance (GLB), modified for individuals with TBI, on weight loss and physical activity.
  • In addition, researchers will be looking at the effectiveness of an educational support group on 12-month outcomes.
What would you do in this study?
  • Eligible participants will schedule a time to visit BSWIR to formally consent and be randomized (like the flip of a coin) into one of two groups: 1) the GLB healthy lifestyle group or 2) the TBI educational support group.
  • The programs would each last for one year and would meet on a regular basis at BSWIR in Dallas.
  • In addition to these classes, participants would be asked to come to BSWIR in Dallas for 5 assessment visits where we would draw blood, measure your weight, and ask a series of survey questions. You would be compensated for your time.
