ABSTRACT

Health education practices are central to preventing heart disease. The great challenge remains how to promote the adoption of healthy behaviors that can reduce risk factors for heart disease. In São Paulo, Brazil, the Healthy Lifestyle Multiplier Students program is based on studies that train older students ("multipliers") as peer educators for younger students. These students influence each others' cultural development and psychosocial growth, encourage one another to diversify their social relationships, and transform teaching-learning experiences. This intervention focused on physical activity, healthy diet, and the health effects of cigarette and alcohol consumption.

Figure 5: Peers play a board game.

Mentions: Players who answered correctly advanced; players who answered incorrectly were penalized by backtracking 1 space. When a peer gave the wrong answer, the multiplier student asked whether anyone knew the right answer, and the one who did received a small reward. The multiplier students had decided on rewards such as apples and bookmarks (made by the students) with phrases that encouraged healthy habits. Key chains were offered to those who were penalized, so they would not forget the importance of treating the heart well (Figure 5).
