Some CRISP projects will focus on preventing Cardiovascular disease.
One of our current projects will refine a bi-directional text messaging intervention integrated with a web-based CV Prevention Registry to improve participation in a statewide community cardiovascular screening and navigation program, Colorado Healthy Heart Solutions, that uses Community Health Workers. The intervention will be piloted to assess feasibility, acceptability, effect on participation and retention in the program, and effect on health-promoting behaviors, weight, blood pressure and cholesterol. The study will take place in two Colorado communities: San Luis and Mesa counties.
