The purpose of the grant proposed was to fund a Healthy Eating, Aging, and Living program (HEAL) for older adults age 50 and over at Union Station Homeless Services. The HEAL program is designed to help underserved older adults prevent, delay, or manage chronic illnesses through the provision of health and nutrition education, behavior modification support group, and Tai Chi exercises. An extensive literature review was conducted to identify the needs of the targeted population and to support the HEAL program goals and objectives. The California Wellness Foundation was selected as the funding source. Successful completion of this grant proposal thesis project was not contingent upon actual submission and/or funding of the grant.
