  • Relationship Between Physical Activity and Health Outcomes in Overweight and Obese Medically Complex Adults, a Randomized Trial (PAHO) Rochester, Minn.

    Obesity is common in adults with complex medical problems with ensuing complications afterwards. Obese patients suffer higher mortality and impaired functional status often as a result of their obesity. One primary goal to reduce both obesity and improve functional status is exercise. The investigators hypothesize that a simple exercise intervention with limited behavioral goal-setting will reduce weight and increase functional status compared to usual care. As a secondary measure, the investigators hypothesize that using this intervention will reduce hospital admissions and ER visits.
