The Central Texas CATCH Middle School Project (CATCH MS) was a school-based health promotion initiative aimed at promoting physical activity, healthy eating and obesity prevention among middle school students living in central Texas. CATCH MS activities were rooted in a coordinated school health framework, and harnessed the resources of multiple stakeholders in multiple settings within the school context to promote child health. The project, funded by a grant from the Michael & Susan Dell Foundation, took place between December 2008 and December 2012 in five school districts and 39 public middle schools in central Texas.

Research details and past surveys are available on the Details tab.
