Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. There is a 1.5 to 2-time relative risk of developing CVD in persons living with HIV when compared with HIV-negative persons. The overarching aim of this research study is to develop a formative, multi-level, community-engaged intervention mapping protocol that leverages technology to support cardiovascular health promotion in a community-engaged setting of African-American and Latino sexual-minority men living with HIV.
