Center for Stroke Disparities Solutions



Center for Stroke Disparities Solutions (CSDS) is a consortium between three academic institutions (New York University School of Medicine; Columbia University Medical Center; and SUNY Downstate Medical School); five stroke centers and a practice-based research network of primary care practices within New York City’s Health and Hospital Corporation (HHC); the Research Division of the Hebrew Home at Riverdale (RD-HHAR) and the Visiting Nurse Service of New York (VNSNY) - the largest nonprofit home healthcare organization in the country. The lead institution will be New York University School of Medicine (NYUSOM) and the target communities are Black and Hispanic residents of New York City (NYC). The vision of the proposed Center is to reduce stroke disparities with a particular focus on prevention of recurrent stroke via the: 1) development and implementation of evidence-based interventions targeted at aggressive management of hypertension among stroke survivors in community-based primary care practices within HHC; 2) dissemination of novel, culturally-tailored stroke health education in faith-based and other community-based organizations in NYC; 3) training the next generation of minority investigators in stroke disparities research. The Center will comprise an Administrative Core, a Research Education/Training Core, and a Research Core with three stroke prevention/intervention projects.
