Status: Current

Grant Start: 08/15/2015

Grant End: 05/31/2023

Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) is a high-impact lifestyle intervention for primary and secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease that centers on a low-salt, low-fat diet and emphasizes fresh fruit and vegetables. This is a randomized trial to determine if a culturally-tailored DASH intervention, paired with weekly grocery delivery, can improve blood pressure control in hypertensive urban American Indian people. Our primary outcome is systolic blood pressure measured after the 8-week intervention and again at week 12.
