SHARE is an NIH-funded behavioral intervention project that represents a collaboration between the University of Michigan and the Diocese of Corpus Christi. SHARE is a primary stroke prevention project which targets lifestyle change through a culturally-sensitive, faith-based multicomponent intervention. Churches are randomized to intervention or control groups (who receive a delayed intervention) and enrolled in astaggered fashion. A one-year intervention consisting of self-help materials, motivational interviewing, tailored newsletters, and social environmental change is implemented.
