The Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) landmark randomized trial demonstrated that participants with prediabetes could reduce their risk for type 2 diabetes by 58% if they achieved 5%-7% weight loss through healthy eating and increasing physical activity. The National DPP (NDPP) is a group intervention based on the DPP and has been widely disseminated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and many healthcare institutions. While data show that the program is effective in diverse populations, enrollment among men from low-income and minority communities is low. Thus, the study piloted a novel adaptation focused on men living in disadvantaged neighborhoods. The study approach to adaptation and implementation used characteristics of participatory research, including input from an expert panel of African American and Latino leaders, ongoing consultation with an Advisory Panel, and focus groups with members of the target population. Discussions with these groups focused on male perspectives regarding health promotion and barriers and facilitators to participation in health programming for men. There was general agreement when reviewing ongoing pilot program implementation that the adapted program should have male-only groups with male coaches, as the Advisory Panel had originally suggested. The pilot programs were implemented at five New York City Department of Parks and Recreation sites in Harlem, the Bronx, and Brooklyn in 2015-2016.

Drinking increases the risk of elevated blood pressure, a risk factor for chronic ailments such as hypertension and cardiovascular disease. The experience of elevated blood pressure in young adulthood may be critical for the development of these diseases later in life. College campuses are venues replete with young adults, and drinking is a popular activity in these settings. Because Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) produce a large proportion of black college graduates, understanding the social context of drinking among young blacks attending HBCUs is important in understanding the role and characteristics of drinking as a risk factor for the development of elevated blood pressure. This article reviews existing literature on alcohol and blood pressure and proposes a conceptual framework linking socioenvironmental factors, stress, and alcohol consumption at HBCUs in the context of elevated blood pressure among young blacks. Recommendations for future research are also proposed.
