A collaborative research project between Kaiser Permanente Northern California and the University of California, San Francisco aiming to eliminate disparities in hypertension control between African Americans and Caucasians, and to identify and quantify disparities in risk factors for stroke in the young. The Health Impacts Model core, using the CVD policy Model, will be translating data gathered from the studies to estimate the impact of findings on the health of populations. The Education and Training Core will have an education program for training in disparities issues related to study, dissemination of the research methods and results. The project is supported by the Administration core

The Center for Stroke Disparities Solutions (CSDS) Stroke Prevention/Intervention Research Programs is a consortium aiming to reduce stroke disparities among African-Americans and Hispanics by implementing and evaluating three culturally tailored stroke prevention programs along the continuum of stroke care and train the next generation of investigators in stroke disparities research. The Center's three research projects are supported by the Research Education/Training Core, the Research, and the Administration cores.

A multidisciplinary collaboration between centers in the United States and Puerto Rico, the Florida Puerto Collaboration to Reduce Stroke Disparities (FL-PR CReSD) aims to address stroke disparities among African Americans and Hispanics, to identify the best approaches to eliminate stroke care disparities in these group, and to initiate the Florida Puerto Rico Stroke Registry. To effectively support this initiative, the program is supported by the Biostatistics and Data Management, the Research/Training Core, and the Administration core.
