Intervention Details:
    Behavioral: Telephone-based
    The intervention will be telephone-based and individually-tailored to participants' compliance knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors; psychosocial predictors of compliance; health literacy; race and culture; and prescribed medication regimen. The intervention calls will utilize interactive voice recognition technology to facilitate interest, participation, and interaction with call recipients.
Detailed Description:

The intervention will be telephone-based and individually-tailored to participants' compliance knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors; psychosocial predictors of compliance; health literacy; race and culture; and prescribed medication regimen. The intervention calls will utilize interactive voice recognition technology to facilitate interest, participation, and interaction with call recipients. We will evaluate the intervention in a randomized controlled trial with telephone interviews administered to all participants at baseline, 6, 9, and 12-months
