1 in 4 Stroke Patients Suffer PTSD

One in 4 stroke survivors suffer from PTSD symptoms within the 1st year post-event, and 1 in 9 experience chronic PTSD more than a year later – results of a study led by Columbia University Medical Center researchers.

NIH awards $40 million in grants to reduce stroke disparities in the U.S.

Four research centers including the Center for Stroke Disparities Solutions—a partnership of the New York University Langone Medical Center and Columbia University Medical Center —will develop high-impact culturally tailored interventions aimed at lowering stroke risk among racial and ethnic minorities in the United States.
