AGENDA

Cardiovascular Disease Prevention in High-risk Rural Communities
NIH Off Campus
6701 Rockledge Drive (Rockledge 2)
CONFERENCE ROOM 9112/9116
Bethesda, MD 20892
June 14-15, 2010

OBJECTIVE:
This two-day workshop is designed to guide future research to develop, implement, and evaluate family and community interventions to reduce obesity, hypertension, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease (CVD) in rural communities of the United States. The intended outcome is a set of recommendations to NHLBI and other funding partners on the conduct of community-based research to reduce the CVD burden in high-risk rural communities of the United States. Workshop participants will discuss key factors that contribute to obesity, hypertension, diabetes, and CVD from the perspective of rural populations, the challenges and opportunities to achieving and maintaining healthy lifestyles in rural communities, and the resources that rural communities provide for supporting CVD intervention research.

Recruitment, Intervention and outcomes

Recruitment: Discuss which groups to target-- families, children only, adults only?

Intervention design and implementation:

  • Discuss intervention areas topics and targeted risk factors to focus (e.g., hypertension, obesity, diabetes).
  • Discuss study design options, potential intervention design and methods (e.g., formative research, intervention, and follow up). What might a successful community-based intervention in a rural underserved community be?
  • Discuss intervention implementation (e.g., use of community health workers, various settings to implement intervention, for example, community health centers, schools, etc.).
  • Discuss how to advocate for policy and environmental changes. Discuss the use of ongoing community programs deemed efficacious to develop the evidence.

Outcomes and Metrics:

  • Discuss individual, environmental and community outcomes.
  • Discuss metrics to demonstrate sustainability and to evaluate success.

Capacity Building Through Community Development,
Training and Partnerships

  • Community development: Discuss methods for community development including grant writing, economic incentives, and leadership training and policy and environmental changes.
  • Training the Next Generation of CVD Researchers: Discuss methods to train young investigators and community health workers (e.g., through training workshops and financial incentives).
  • Partnerships: Discuss how to develop partnership (e.g., by including local stakeholders, community health centers administrators, federal sponsors, and advocacy groups)
  • Metrics: What metrics to demonstrate sustainability? What metrics to evaluate success?
