Goal 3: Advance Translational Research

Building Effective Interventions for Heart-Healthy Eating

What translational science approaches are best able to test individual, community, and environmental approaches for increasing adherence to heart-healthy dietary recommendations, such as the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) diet?


What are the most effective types of interventions (e.g., personal coaching, print material, interactive internet content, faith-based community programs, campaigns) and tools (e.g., menus, recipes, tips, trackers) to foster specific behavior changes by individuals (e.g., reducing sodium, increasing whole grains, switching to low-fat or fat-free dairy, switching to liquid oils instead of solid fats)? What are the essential components of interventions to effect heart-healthy dietary changes?
