Impact of a community-based multiple risk factor intervention on cardiovascular risk in black families with a history of premature coronary disease

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Background - Black subjects with a family history of premature coronary heart disease (CHD) have a marked excess risk, yet barriers prevent effective risk reduction. We tested a community-based multiple risk factor intervention (community-based care [CBC]) and compared it with "enhanced" primary care (EPC) to reduce CHD risk in high-risk black families. Methods and Results - Black 30- to 59-year-old siblings of a proband with CHD aged
