The vision of the Center is to test and translate evidence-based strategies for improving hypertension control among African Americans into clinical and public health practice. This Core, constituted of experts in Clinical Medicine, Nursing, Epidemiology, Biostatistics, Behavioral Science, and Health Services Research, will be responsible for promoting that vision and assuring that the whole is more than the sum of the Center's parts.
