Survival Mediterranean Style: A Cluster-Randomized Trial in the US Fire
Friday, June 1 | 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT | Register
Speakers: Stefanos N. Kales, MD, MPH, FACP, FACOEM
"Mediterranean Diet" (MD) describes the traditional eating habits followed
in countries bordering the Mediterranean Sea and is characterized by high
consumption of olive oil, fruits, vegetables, unrefined breads and cereals,
legumes and nuts, moderate consumption of fish and poultry, a relatively low
intake of dairy products, and low-sparing consumption of red meat, processed
meats and sweets. Robust data support the effectiveness of the MD in
reducing all-cause mortality, CVD morbidity and mortality and cancer
mortality, diabetes, and obesity.
"Feeding America's Bravest: Survival Mediterranean Style" motivates
firefighters and their families to modify their food culture and reduce
cardio-metabolic risk profiles by adopting Mediterranean Diet principles. It
is a cluster randomized, controlled trial within the 44 stations of the
Indianapolis Fire Department. It compares a Mediterranean Diet Nutritional
Intervention (MDNI) (group 1) vs. usual care (group 2). The intervention
includes behavioral and environmental components. The primary outcome is 12-
month change in Mediterranean Diet score comparing group 1 vs. group 2.
1. Understand Mediterranean nutrition and its benefits
2. Learn about the chronic disease risks of firefighting
3. Review the trial and results to date
