TAILOR PEER-BASED SLEEP HEALTH EDUCATION AND SOCIAL SUPPORT IN BLACKS WITH OSA (NYU SoM)(NIH)

Description

This collaborative research project will build capacity to support evaluation and referral of black men and women at risk for sleep apnea at the community level. It will examine whether a culturally and linguistically tailored peer-based sleep health intervention will increase adherence to recommended sleep apnea screening and treatment among blacks in barbershops, beauty salons and churches. Three hundred and ninety eight blacks will be enrolled in the study and followed for a year to evaluate intervention responses and examine environmental drivers of health disparities.
