LITTLE ROCK, Arkansas — The Arkansas Prevention Research Center at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences is being awarded a $3.75 million grant to continue its work.
The grant from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention allows the research center to continue for five more years as it helps address chronic disease in Arkansas. The CDC previously awarded a $1.7 million grant in 2009 to establish the center.
The latest grant is to be used to help implement and evaluate the cost-effectiveness of a program to identify people with uncontrolled high blood pressure and to help them follow medical recommendations to lower their blood pressure.
