Development of a Culturally Sensitive Protocol for Hypertension Control for BIPOC Populations Receiving Care at Massachusetts General Hospital Chelsea Healthcare Center

Medical School/Institution:
Project Location/Site: MGH Chelsea Healthcare Center, Chelsea, MA
Key Outcomes:
Low patient participation in the phone motivational interviews is due to a lack of incentive/time —only six of the 31 patients were reached and responded to requests for interviews. Hypertension control for individuals with comorbid diabetes/prediabetes and obesity is more complex and requires multi-level preventative education in diet and lifestyle improvements.
