Description: Chronic diseases are the leading causes of death and disability in the United States, largely driven by preventable health behaviors. Health behaviors, such as tobacco use, poor nutrition and physical inactivity, are linked to chronic conditions, premature death, and disability. Chronic diseases and their outcomes disproportionately impact racial and ethnic populations including African Americans/Blacks, Hispanic Americans, Asian Americans, Native Hawaiian/Other Pacific Islanders, American Indians, and Alaska Natives. Addressing chronic disease health disparities is complex. The risk is affected by not only health behaviors and ensuring adequate health care but also by factors that include income, education, economic opportunity, and location of residence. In addition, the risk for chronic disease starts very early in life. Attention to improving the access to high quality nutrition, opportunities for physical activity, and providing a smoke free environment for young children are critical steps in reducing health disparities. Thus, any effort to improve this multi-faceted challenge requires a long term vision and investment. The purpose of this FOA is to provide communities the opportunity to improve poor health, prevent chronic diseases, and reduce health disparities among racial and ethnic populations with the highest risk, or burden, of chronic disease (i.e., hypertension, heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, and obesity). The tools to accomplish this are culturally tailored interventions to address preventable risk behaviors (tobacco use, poor nutrition and physical inactivity). In addition, this FOA provides the opportunity to engage community and clinical efforts to better address health risks that are particularly relevant at the local community level for racial and ethnic populations experiencing health disparities.
