The Chickasaw Healthy Eating Environments Research Study (CHEERS)


About the event

This webinar will provide an overview of the Chickasaw Healthy Eating Environments Research Study (CHEERS), a study being conducted in partnership with the Chickasaw Nation. CHEERS comprises several mutually reinforcing strategies to improve blood pressure control among American Indian adults with uncontrolled hypertension. Study findings, including a health economics assessment, will be used to promote policies to expand both the Packed Promise for a Healthy Heart intervention and the establishment of brick-and-mortar grocery outlets in rural Chickasaw Nation communities.

This free webinar is part of the Native-CHART Webinar Series. Native-CHART (Native-Controlling Hypertension And Risk Through Technology) aims to improve control of blood pressure and other risk factors for cardiovascular disease in American Indians, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders with diagnosed hypertension. The research center is housed within the Institute for Research and Education to Advance Community Health (IREACH) at WSU
