Job Summary

Hypertension is the most important modifiable risk factor for cardiovascular disease, the leading cause of mortality in the United States. African Americans have the highest prevalence of hypertension of any race/ethnic group in the United States, which largely contributes to their increased burden of stroke compared to non-Hispanic whites. The Emergency Department represents a traditionally missed opportunity to identify and treat hypertension, within both health care systems and difficult-to-reach populations.


REACH OUT is a multicomponent text messaging intervention to reduce blood pressure among hypertensive patients evaluated in an Emergency Department in Flint, Michigan.


The University of Michigan Stroke Program has several programs with the goal of addressing health disparities in stroke prevention, treatment and outcomes. We are starting recruitment for our community intervention in the Emergency Department of Hurley Medical Center. The primary focus of this position will be research subject recruitment and follow- up outcome visits.


This position is term limited, and based on grant funding
