Comparative effectiveness of health coaching and technology interventions on patients with uncontrolled hypertension
Our comparative effectiveness study is a randomized controlled trial examining effectiveness of student health coaching and technology interventions on patients with uncontrolled hypertension. Hypertension is one of the world’s leading chronic illnesses, is significantly correlated to cardiovascular diseases risk factors, yet lack sufficient research on effective interventions, especially in the field of health coaching and technology. This study, sponsored by the JTSSF foundation, has been going on over the past few years and we are aiming to work on the last cohort of baseline, 6-month, and 9-month survey datasets this summer. In addition to leading the data team on performing exploratory and comparative analyses, I am working with Dr. Ivey MD, MHSA, Morgan Vien MPH, and the team on our manuscript over the summer.
