Study Details

Improving your blood pressure through culinary medicine

(IRB#: IRB_00145096)

High blood pressure is a silent disease that can have devastating consequences. Keeping your blood pressure under control will reduce your risk of developing heart disease, strokes, and even dementia. This study is designed to help you accurately detect if you have high blood pressure, and then get you the treatment you need to keep it under control. In the intervention arm, you will get to participate in a series of cooking classes and learn how to cook foods which will improve your blood pressure without the use of medications. We will discuss components of the DASH diet and teach key culinary skills to help you feel confident preparing and eating more healthful food. If you choose to participate, you will be asked to attend all physician visits, nurse visits, and shared medical visits. You will also be asked to track your blood pressure at home and report it every few weeks to few months. You will be asked to get labs, and weight periodically as well to track your health.
