SKOLARUS LAB

When seeking to prevent stroke altogether, hypertension is the main focus as it is the most important cardiovascular risk factor. Despite valiant efforts, hypertension remains a widespread issue. So, innovative methods to address hypertension are needed. At the Skolarus Lab, we are seeking to use mobile health to tackle hypertension. The Reach Out project uses various components of mobile health to encourage behaviors to reduce the burden of hypertension, including blood pressure self-monitoring, healthy diet, physical activity, and medication adherence.
