The Center for Chronic Disease Reduction and Equity Promotion Across Minnesota (C2DREAM) will reduce disparities in cardiovascular disease (CVD) and the related chronic conditions (RCC) of hypertension and obesity experienced by Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) communities including immigrants and refugees across Minnesota. C2DREAM will promote innovative, multilevel interventions that target fundamental causes of chronic disease inequities among BIPOC communities; generate knowledge, analytical and implementation approaches, and community engagement strategies to understand and develop solutions to address racism at multiple levels; develop and support the next generation of health equity researchers; create and sustain a community-engaged and equity-guided dissemination and implementation processes to translate research results and knowledge into action; and employ equity-guided evaluation approaches. Our regional partnership of academic institutions and community stakeholders is poised to understand and ultimately address the ways that racism undermines the well-being of BIPOC communities across Minnesota.
