The Johns Hopkins Center for Health Equity is currently conducting three primary research studies: The RICH LIFE (Reducing Inequities in Care of Hypertension: Lifestyle Improvement for Everyone) Project, Five Plus Nuts & Beans for Kidneys, and ADHINCRA (Addressing Hypertension Care in Africa).
RICH LIFE Project
RICH LIFE is testing a comprehensive patient-centered approach to reducing disparities in blood pressure control and improving activation among persons with hypertension.
5 Plus Nuts & Beans for Kidneys
Five Plus Nuts and Beans for Kidneys is seeing how eating meals rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts, beans, and lean meats can lower blood pressure and protect the kidneys.
The ADHINCRA study tests whether blending technology, non-clinical caregivers and culturally relevant messaging can improve outcomes in the management of high blood pressure for rural, low-income patients in Ghana.
