So today, we're gonna have some presentations from the American College of Preventive Medicine recipients.
The Division for Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention was fortunate enough to award these grant opportunities to these recipients, and they were charged with developing innovative grant models with within their clinical practices to address hypertension, and what we have in a very disparate population
of African Americans. So these organizations have been working for a number of years.
Here to begin the work in these demonstration projects in at least 5 different areas.
So our speakers today are going to be from the University of Alabama Medical Center.
From Henry Ford Health System, From Cook County Health System, from the Lincoln Community Health Center and the Association of Black Cardiologists, Emory University School of Medicine and Grady Health Systems.
So we hope that you are excited about these presentations. I surely am.

Video Summary
The video featured several presentations from different organizations funded by the American College of Preventive Medicine. Each organization focused on different aspects of preventive medicine and hypertension management, with an emphasis on underserved populations. The University of Alabama Medical Center developed a program that aimed to improve hypertension control in African American males through self-monitoring blood pressure and lifestyle education. Henry Ford Health System implemented the Express Blood Pressure program, which provided intensive care and support to improve blood pressure control in high-risk individuals. Cook County Health System focused on reducing hypertension in African American men by providing education and access to resources. Lincoln Community Health Center aimed to improve blood pressure control through outreach, education, and social determinants of health support. Grady Health Systems focused on postpartum management and navigation support for women with hypertensive disorders during pregnancy.

Common challenges faced by the organizations included engaging patients in self-monitoring blood pressure, addressing social determinants of health, and ensuring consistent follow-up and education in a timely manner. Despite challenges, the organizations reported successes in improving attendance at follow-up visits, connecting patients to community resources, and increasing patient satisfaction.

Overall, the video highlighted the importance of a multidisciplinary, patient-centered approach to preventive medicine and hypertension management, especially for underserved populations. The organizations showcased their innovative strategies and efforts to address the unique needs of their patient populations in order to improve hypertension control and overall health outcomes.
