Native-Controlling Hypertension and Risk through Technology (Native-CHART) Consortium Core

Status: Current

The Consortium Core works to expand our network of community collaborators and address the priorities of Native-CHART partners regarding hypertension and cardiovascular disease. This Core includes seven Satellite Centers located throughout the United States. The Satellite Centers work with local communities and organizations to facilitate the exchange of ideas at annual conferences and to promote effective interventions at the local, regional, and national level. These Centers also conduct annual assessments of health and healthcare access to determine relevant local, regional, and national priorities. The Consortium Core collaborates with community and governance agencies to implement or strengthen regulations and policies that foster research partnerships between underserved minority communities and academic institutions.
