FL-PR CReSD CITI Training Modules : RETP Stroke Disparities Video Series

Research and Education Training Program: Stroke Disparities Video Series

One of the primary goals of the FL-PR CReSD Research Education and Training Core is to train a broad spectrum of stakeholders in the skills and strategies needed to enhance stroke disparities research and decrease stroke disparities in Hispanics and other groups. The geographic distribution across Florida and Puerto Rico and Spanish language background of many RETP recipients are unique and necessitate a combination of live and online training with culturally tailored bilingual curriculums. This will produce a scalable educational tool that can be expanded across the US and abroad.

This five 20 minute lecture series includes sessions on health disparities in general, disparities in stroke risk factors and cardiovascular health, stroke disparities in women, disparities in acute stroke and treatment, and current stroke disparities research,.
