On November 7, 2016, the RMI-Family pilot study commenced recruitment at the Pediatric Centre for Weight and Health in Edmonton. After ~3 weeks, and approaching several families about the study, we just recruited and enrolled our first family (hurray!).

Over the coming months, we plan to enroll 10 families as dyads (10 youth + 10 parents). At this point, we will be testing our processes of data collection, including those related to diet, physical activity, psychosocial health, and importantly, motivation to change.
