    Collapse Overview 
    Collapse Overview
    The programmatic focus of my research is the development, dissemination and translation into clinical practice and community settings, of evidence-based behavioral interventions to improve outcomes for vulnerable populations (race-ethnic minorities, rural dwellers, military veterans, people residing in low- to middle- income countries) with or at risk for stroke. I am also committed to helping to train, mentor, and inspire people from groups who are under-represented in medicine (Black/African American, Hispanic, Latino, Native American, Pacific Islander, Native Alaskan, Hawaiian, persons from low socioeconomic backgrounds of any race-ethnicity, and individuals with disabilities) to conduct high-quality neurological research and develop successful academic careers.
