Reducing Disparities in Hypertension with a Practiced-Based Enhanced Care Program.
This is an R01 project embedded within a larger P50 center grant to study health disparities. This grant will study implementation of practice-based strategies to reduce hypertension disparities. This is a 5 year project where community based participatory research methods are used to design and implement a quality improvement program in primary care practices in Eastern North Carolina. The overall goals are to reduce blood pressure levels among patients with poorly controlled hypertension, reduce disparities in blood pressure by race and by literacy, create systems that can sustain these improvements within current primary care practice, and understand the time required by practices to provide enhanced care for hypertension.

Outcome Evaluation of the NC Teen Tobacco Use Prevention and Cessation Programs
The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services works to reduce and prevent tobacco use among youth and young adults in North Carolina through three major Tobacco Initiatives and two media campaigns:
- Teen Tobacco Use Prevention and Cessation Initiative (Teen Initiative) and the Tobacco.Reality.Unfiltered. (TRU) media campaign
- Tobacco-Free Colleges Initiative (Colleges Initiative)
- North Carolina Tobacco Quitline (QuitlineNC) and the “Call it Quits” media campaign
The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services launched the Teen Initiative in 2003, began funding components of QuitlineNC in 2005, and expanded to the Colleges Initiative in 2006. These comprehensive, evidenced-based state tobacco control programs are a proven method, along with policy initiatives, to reduce tobacco consumption among youth and adults.
