The Center works to promote equity in health for at-risk populations through advancing scientific knowledge, promoting sustainable changes in practice and policy, partnering with communities, raising public awareness of health inequities, and training scholars. The primary study of the Center is a pragmatic cluster randomized trial in which we will compare the effectiveness of clinic-based standard of care plus audit, feedback and education to an intervention that uses a collaborative care team, a community health worker and specialist consultation to deliver contextualized, appropriately stepped care for reducing disparities and improving patient-centered outcomes among patients with hypertension. Thirty primary care clinics, including Federally Qualified Health Centers, across Maryland and Pennsylvania will recruit an average of 63 patients each (total=1,890). The goal of the study is to improve care for hypertension and reduce racial disparities related to health outcomes. The second study is using community engagement strategies to improve the healthy eating habits of participants with kidney disease. The Research Data Analyst will perform data analysis, management and programming functions for both trials, as well as ancillary studies.
