Native-Controlling Hypertension And Risk through Technology (Native-CHART)

Washington State University
National Institutes of Health; National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities

This five-year grant provides funding to establish, in partnership with the University of Colorado Denver, a new collaborative research center aimed at reducing health risks related to high blood pressure in U.S. Native populations. The center will draw in expertise and solicit input from community organizations, tribes, and researchers across the country to pursue intervention studies that will use technologies, including electronic medical records, text messaging, wearable physical activity monitors, and home blood pressure monitors.
