Sound Generations’ Project Enhance provides licensing, training and assistance for two nationally recognized evidence-based programs: Enhance®Fitness and Enhance®Wellness.
The new Project Enhance WordPress site features an integrated members-only content area for fitness instructors and affiliates across 43 states. Benchmarks across all measurable areas have improved significantly. Overall page size has reduced 93% from 6.5 Mb to < 500 Kb; web server requests have reduced 69% from 59 to 18. These improvements result in page load speeds less than 3 seconds.
WebPage Test Speed Index: median = ~3.591; top 10% = <1.388 In 2021, the average page size = ~2.4 Mb and median page size = ~2.1 Mb. Database-driven websites, like WordPress, are more performance optimized when server requests are < 40 – 60.
Other site updates and improvements include:
More readable content with font sizes > 16 pixels and reduced line widths; keyboard-navigable menu with skip to content link for screen readers; custom-branded browser favicon; improved security, including bruteforce protection.
Project Enhance is a collaboration between Sound Generations, University of Washington and Group Health Cooperative (now Kaiser Permanente).

A new hand-coded CSS website for the Center on Infant Mental Health & Development (CIMHD) — part of the University of Washington School of Nursing.
CIMHD promotes “interdisciplinary research, education and practice; and advances policy related to the social and emotional development of all children during the first five years.
According to CIMHD, “the quality of experiences in the first 3 years of life profoundly impacts later development — including how children perform in school and their ability to form satisfying relationships with teachers and friends. Caring relationships with sensitive parents, or primary caregivers, are the most important factor in determining later outcomes.”
How true. In life, relationships are often the key to success or failure. At work, for example, your relationship with your web development team is the most important factor in determining the outcome of your new website or redesign.
