Omitted Funding Source and Data Error

JAMA Intern Med. 2014;174(8):1419. doi:10.1001/jamainternmed.2014.3669

In the Original Investigation in this August 2014 issue of JAMA Internal Medicine titled “Systolic Blood Pressure Levels Among Adults With Hypertension and Incident Cardiovascular Events: The Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities Study,” first published online in the June 16, 2014, issue of JAMA Internal Medicine (doi:10.1001/jamainternmed.2014.2482), an author’s funding source was omitted. Carlos J. Rodriguez, MD, MPH, was partially supported by the SPRINT clinical trial, National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute grant HHSN268200900048C. In addition, a data error appeared in Table 3. In the “No.” column under the “Elevated SBP 2” heading, the correct number of male patients with stroke event type is 245. The errors have been corrected online, and the corrected version of the article appears in this issue.
