Intervention for Cardiovascular Health in African-Americans
“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.
Behavioral - FAITH! App
Participants allocated to the intervention arm will complete a 10-week, individual-tailored intervention program utilizing the FAITH! App to promote the AHA LS7 through health education and to increase awareness and skill development while enhancing self-efficacy, self-regulation, and social support for healthy behavior change.
