    African-Americans with hypertension continue to demonstrate poor blood pressure (BP) control and have markedly lower rates of hypertension self-management compared to non-African-Americans. Innovative and practical solutions such as mHealth technology are promising and can be leveraged to promote self-management of hypertension. Substantial evidence has demonstrated the importance of community support in improving patients' management of chronic illnesses. Unfortunately, such programs do not offer technology-based interventions (TBI) as a delivery method. Thus, this paper describes the design and rationale of an ongoing pilot study that incorporates TBI using a community-based participatory approach.
