The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) convened several experts from a broad range of biomedical, behavioral, environmental, and social science backgrounds to explore community-engaged implementation research strategies for reducing cardiovascular disparities. Findings from this workshop will help inform NHLBI Strategic Vision Implementation Plan for health disparities implementation research and will have significant impact when scaled up across high burden communities.
