Comprehensive hypertension care in young urban black men: an example of a program of nursing research that integrates genetic science, clinical interventions, and patient outcomes.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Black Americans have the highest rate of hypertension in the world. The well-known consequences of this condition include stroke, heart failure, and renal disease. The causes, care, and control of hypertension, especially among the underserved and understudied group of young urban black men, require more comprehensive models of health care delivery and an understanding of the gene-gene and gene-environment interactions influencing blood pressure.
