Participants will participate in one-time, anonymous, individual interviews. We will talk with women about their knowledge about high blood pressure and obesity, their experiences with accessing healthcare and support for healthy habits, why some women delay getting care, and understand what challenges and helps there are to help women get care. We will ask providers about their perception of the knowledge of women in rural areas about hypertension and the relationship with obesity, and the challenges and successes they have seen and experienced in assisting women access care and build healthy habits.
