Clinical Trial Summary

The proposed intervention is part of a multi-year year grant awarded to the NYU Center for the Study of Asian American Health by to the National Institutes of Health/National Center for Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIH/NCMHD). The funding mechanism is specifically the NCMHD Community-Based Participatory Research (CBPR) Initiative in Reducing and Eliminating Health Disparities: Intervention Research Phase (R24).

The objective of this study is to implement and assess the efficacy of a Community Health worker (CHW) intervention to improve hypertension management and access to care among Filipino Americans living in New York and New Jersey. It is believed that when compared to individuals receiving the less intensive CHW intervention, Filipino Americans receiving the more intensive CHW intervention will:

H1: Exhibit greater compliance with appointment keeping. H2: Exhibit greater compliance with medication taking H3: Show greater reductions in mean systolic and mean diastolic blood pressure. H4: Be more likely to exhibit controlled blood pressure


Clinical Trial Description

Filipino Americans exhibit high rates of hypertension and are therefore at high risk for cardiovascular disease and stroke. However, few interventions have been developed and implemented for this population to address these concerns. A CHW intervention, developed with community input to ensure its cultural and linguistic appropriateness, has the potential to prevent cardiovascular disease and stroke by helping Filipino Americans control their blood pressure. This study has the overall goal of improving health access and cardiovascular health status, particularly hypertension, in the Filipino American community living in New York City and New Jersey through the use of Community Health Workers (CHW).
