Accepts healthy volunteers


The objective of this study is to examine the short-term (6-weeks and 6 months) and long-term (1 year) effects of a phone-based version of Walk With Ease intervention.


Participants will be randomized to either start the 6-week program immediately or after one year. Our Walk with Ease by Telephone (WWE-T) program is adapted from the original 6-week community-based group walking program developed by the Arthritis Foundation for adults with arthritis. The phone-based program will include 2 phone calls each week with a trained Walk With Ease Leader for 6 weeks. Assessments will be completed before at the start of the study, 6 weeks, 6 months and at 12 months.
