CHCR: Using Innovation for Tailored Health Interventions
CMCD: Collaborating to Impact Practice and Policy
A randomized controlled trial to evaluate an innovative intervention in African American women with asthma. It is the first to use a highly tailored telephone counseling approach to address both specific cultural factors affecting asthma and the influence of female sex and gender on asthma control. The results will provide important information about the feasibility and value of programs to address persistent racial and gender disparities in asthma outcomes.
The Center is establishing an Accelerating Impact Team to move effective interventions out into the world as quickly as possible. Our goal is to build an effective team that can coordinate and facilitate the adaption and implementation of proven chronic disease interventions, explore ways to reach large numbers of vulnerable people, and learn how to make the translation process most effective and efficient.
