Summary

Briefly, a trained barbershop navigator will work with each barbershop to measure blood pressure on each adult customer who agrees, and to provide culturally-targeted education about high blood pressure and its consequences, and motivational interviewing-informed counseling about therapeutic lifestyle changes. For customers found to have high blood pressure, the navigator will also provide referral and navigation to a medical provider and, as appropriate, a local pharmacy.

Description

This program will be patterned after barbershop-based blood pressure programs that have demonstrated efficacy in achieving lower blood pressure and improved hypertension control rates among Black men with high blood pressure. This program will reach 10-12 barbershops per year, working with 2-3 barbershops each quarter. Briefly, a trained barbershop navigator will work with each barbershop t o measure blood pressure on each adult customer who agrees, and to provide culturally-targeted education about high blood pressure and its consequences, and motivational interviewing-informed counseling about therapeutic lifestyle changes.
