The Organizational Networks, Assets, and Collaborations (ONAC) Study is a mixed method study that allows for a longitudinal and community-engaged assessment of organizational assets available for CVD risk reduction, and an in-depth appraisal of influences on organizational collaboration, changes in organizational networks, and how changes in organizational networks are associated with the sustainability of intervention and CVD outcomes.

“If everyone is moving forward together, then success takes care of itself.” – Henry Ford

Collaborators let down their guards. Successful collaborators still carry a taser.” – Ryan Lilly

“Teamwork – the laughable idea that everyone has the same goal.” – Ryan Lilly

The ONAC Study collects data at three different time points:

  • Baseline of Heart Matters intervention
  • 12 months-post intervention
  • 18 months-post intervention

“Collaboration, it turns out, is not a gift from the ‘research’ gods but a skill that requires effort and practice.”
