US research partners

US pilot studies
The MEND Foundation, in partnership with MEND Central, SPARK and the NYC Parks and Recreation Department, completed three pilot studies of the MEND 7-13 Program in Rego Park, NY, to assess the adaptation of the UK program content to the US.  All Programs were successful adaptations of MEND 7-13 to US standards. Additionally, the MEND 7-13 Program materials have been translated into Spanish.

US Randomized Controlled Trial (RCT)
The MEND Foundation plans to follow up the positive results from our pilot studies with a randomized controlled trial, in partnership with the  Michael & Susan Dell Center for the Advancement of Healthy Living, University of Texas School of Public Health, Austin Regional Campus; Baylor College of Medicine; RTI International and Duke University.
