ENLACE: A Promotora-Led Physical Activity Intervention Trial for Latinas in Texas

The purpose of this study it to determine if a promotora-led intervention that takes a
comprehensive, multi-level, community-based approach to promoting physical activity (PA) is
effective among a particularly underserved segment of Latinas. We hypothesize that Latinas in
the promotora-led PA Intervention will significantly increase minutes per week of
moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (MVPA) compared to Latinas in the attention-control
