The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute is interested in soliciting proposals from all interested organizations for a multicenter epidemiologic study to identify, recruit, examine, and follow up to four community-based cohorts of adults, all of Hispanic origin, of size 4,000 each, ages 18-74. The four cohorts will be majority Cuban, Puerto Rican, Mexican American, and Central American. Distinctive factors hypothesized to influence risk (protective or harmful) to be measured include social, behavioral, occupational and lifestyle factors, and acculturation (e.g., nutrition habits, access to health care, role of family and community, cigarette smoking, sleep behaviors). Measures of obesity, activity, diabetes, lung function, cognitive function, hearing, dental conditions, and cardiovascular risk factors will also be studied. The period of performance is for eight years beginning on or around August 1, 2006. The Government anticipates that one contract will be awarded for a Coordinating Center under RFP No. NHLBI-HC-06-01 and up to four Field Center contracts will be awarded under RFP No. NHLBI-HC-06-02. This acquisition has been designated as full and open competition under the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) code 541710.
