Chayna Hardy-Taylor, DNP, CRNP
Chayna Hardy-Taylor received her DNP from George Washington University after implementing and evaluating a project that focused on childhood obesity. The purpose of the project was to tackle some of the systems level issues that contribute to childhood obesity through the integration of a nutrition and exercise program in an urban community organization, which she continues her work on presently. Chayna holds the position as a CRNP at a retail health facility providing family care services to the community, a position that she thoroughly enjoys.

The purpose of this study was to utilize a systems perspective in the implementation and evaluation of a community-based, family-centered nutrition and exercise program at the organization to increase knowledge of healthy food behaviors and improve youth participant’s attitude and mindset towards a healthy lifestyle over twelve weeks. This presentation relates to the conference theme because it focuses on incorporating quality improvement initiatives in a community organization to improve the health of pediatric obese individuals and families.
