PMID:  16422038     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The Hispanic population is the fastest growing minority population in the United States. Little research has been done to assess the stroke risk in the Hispanic population, which has a higher prevalence of hypertension, diabetes, alcohol use, and physical inactivity. Healthcare professionals therefore are faced with the management and education of a cultural group with unfamiliar health beliefs. To decrease the risk of stroke, a culturally sensitive program that combines education and risk identification is needed. This article identifies the development of a stroke education and screening program for Hispanics.
