Brief description Understanding the mechanism by which contextual features are associated with risk for cardiovascular diseases (CVD) has implications for the development of efficient and targeted interventions. In three different studies we assess if the link between the context in which individuals live or work and risk for CVD (1) is indirect through effects on psychosocial factors and (2) varies as a function of such psychosocial factors in the general population and in populations at elevated risk.
