The Heart Improvement Project of the University of Oklahoma School of Community Medicine


The resource describes the Heart Improvement Project (HIP), a comprehensive cardiovascular risk reduction program in northern Tulsa, OK. HIP fosters collaboration among community and government agencies, and the University of Oklahoma medical and public health schools. HIP effectively augments traditional public health outreach efforts and clinical care delivery for uninsured patients with increased cardiovascular risk, by performing outreach in non-traditional, non-clinical settings.
