About

The purpose of this study is to test an interactive DVD intervention to encourage patients to stick to their blood pressure medication in order to achieve blood pressure control for African American patients. The intervention will convey health messages through personal patient stories who have dealt with or continue to struggle with high blood pressure. Hypothesis 1: At the end of 9 months a higher proportion of patients randomized to the intervention group will achieve appropriate blood pressure control. Hypothesis 2: At the end of 9 months a higher proportion of patients who randomized to the intervention group will report high adherence to their hypertension medications.
