Cooking healthy and physical activity project (CHAPA)

 

Overview

The Cooking healthy and physical activity project (CHAPA) was part of the Healthy Active Australia's Community and school grants program funded by the Australian Government of Health and Ageing.

CHAPA was a community-based group program managed by Healthy Living NT for people with heart disease and/or type 2 diabetes in the greater Darwin region. The program was provided by a team of health professionals consisting of a nurse educator, dietitian, exercise physiologist and psychologist.

CHAPA was a ten week program which consists of two sessions per week, and included sessions on goal setting, physical activity, cooking healthy food and nutrition education. The project delivered four programs over a 12 month period in 2008 and 2009.
