The Florida-Puerto Rico Collaboration to Reduce Stroke Disparities is a multidisciplinary collaboration.

Florida Puerto Rico Collaboration to Reduce Stroke Disparities

In 2009, the total direct and indirect cost of stroke and cardiovascular disease is estimated to be more than $312 billion. The financial and emotional burden of stroke and cardiovascular disease is greater among African Americans and Hispanics given that they are at greater risk than other groups of common risk factors like hypertension, diabetes, obesity, and metabolic syndrome.

The Florida Puerto Collaboration to Reduce Stroke Disparities (FL-PR CReSD) aims to address stroke disparities among African Americans and Hispanics and to identify the best approaches to eliminate stroke care disparities in these groups.
