Assessing the Feasibility of Implementing a Storytelling Intervention among African Americans with Hypertension: A Pilot Study

Personal narratives or storytelling is an approach that has been used to promote healthy behaviors among people with diabetes, breast cancer, and high blood pressure. There is a need for low-cost, culturally-tailored interventions that promote healthy behaviors and improve health outcomes in the African American community. The objective of this project is to develop a storytelling intervention for African Americans with high blood pressure. Participants will be filmed sharing their experiences living with high blood pressure, and the videos will be shared with other African Americans with high blood pressure. We are recruiting 6-8 African American adults with high blood pressure, age 18-80, that have been diagnosed with high blood pressure and are taking medications to manage high blood pressure.
