The leading cause of morbidity and mortality in the United States is cardiac disease, closely followed by morbidity and mortality due to violence and intentional injuries. Hostility, and the related constructs of anger and aggression, as risk factors for coronary artery disease are well documented. The majority of study has focused on patients already diagnosed with cardiac disease or longitudinal follow-up programs of adolescent and young adult college or medical student populations. Few studies of women, ethnically and socially diverse individuals have been done. Despite a growing body of research on the role of religion and religiousity and health outcomes, few assessment protocals for cardiac prevention or intervention included measures of religion or spirituality. This presentation reports on findings from a descriptive correlational study of the relationship between hostility, levels of spirituality, and selected indices of health risk among a convenience sample of 150 predominately Hispanic men and women participating in a two hour intervention program for court-ordered aggression reduction. Subjective information was collected using items from the Self-Administered Comprehensive Health Risk Profile, the Cook-Medley Hostility Scale of the MMPI-2, and the Reed Spiritual Perspective Scale. Objective health screening data included blood pressure, body mass index, total cholesterol and glucose screening. The development of a collaborative research partnership in a non-traditional community setting and recommendations for identification of health needs among hard-to-reach populations will also be described.
