In honor of Black History Month, during February the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD) has published a series of "Conversations with Researchers Advancing Health Equity." One of the researchers featured is LaPrincess Brewer, M.D., a Mayo Clinic preventive cardiologist and health equity researcher.
Dr. Brewer is principal investigator of the NIMHD- and AHA-funded study Fostering African American Improvement in Total Health (FAITH!). This program is a community-based participatory research initiative focused on cardiovascular health promotion in partnership with African American churches.
