The FAITH! Trial: A mHealth Intervention to Improve Cardiovascular Health Among African-Americans

The purpose of this project is to apply a community-based participatory research (CBPR) approach to rigorously refine and test the feasibility and preliminary efficacy of an existing cardiovascular (CV) health and wellness digital application (app) prototype to improve CV health according to the American Heart Association Life's Simple 7 (LS7) framework among African-American (AA) adults within faith communities. The investigators hypothesize that the app-based intervention will be feasible and improve LS7 among AAs from baseline to 6-months post-intervention.
