Adopting a Population Health Strategy to Aggressively Reduce Cardiovascular Risk: It Works in Rural Communities Too!

March 3 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Presenter
Sam Cykert, MD, professor
UNC School of Medicine

Sam Cykert, MD, will describe how implementation of the Heart Health Now study affected cardiovascular risk when applied to high-risk patients in 219 practices across North Carolina. Half of these practices were in rural areas and a quarter of high-risk patients were Black. The discussion will focus on how lessons learned could systematically be applied in the context of practice support through “Primary Care Extension Centers.”

The Inclusive Science Program (ISP) focuses on increasing the inclusion of populations that have been historically underrepresented in clinical and translational research. The ISP Spring Seminar Series aims to highlight research that is working to increase diverse representation in research.
