Project Title

The Health for Hearts United Collaborative

Funding Dates



The Health for Hearts United Collaborative is a community-academic partnership in North Florida that involves a network of 45 churches. Through the partnership, church leaders work with community members to improve nutrition and physical activity practices that promote cardiovascular health and improve cardiovascular risk factors for African Americans. This project will investigate the effects of different implementation strategies for church-based interventions. The results from the evaluation will be used to increase the potential for scale-up and dissemination.
