Faith-Based Approaches In the Treatment of Hypertension & Colorectal Cancer (FAITH-CRC)

The FAITH-CRC study partners with churches and mosques in all 5 boroughs of New York City to reach Black men 50 and over. At each organization, the study team trains 2-3 individuals to serve as lay health educators for the duration of the project. After meeting with the organization's leadership and lay health educators, the FAITH-CRC team collaborates with the organization to host a screening event for men at the organization and the community in which the organization is located. The FAITH-CRC team provides free blood pressure screening and health education for all. Men who meet study eligibility criteria have the option of participating in the research study. Study participants are reimbursed for their time.
