Wayne State researchers seek method to ID women at high risk of stroke

February 8, 2013


A team of Wayne State University School of Medicine physicians will seek to develop methods to better identify women at increased risk for stroke using a new type of professional education grant. The study, "Improving the Identification of Women at Increased Risk for Stroke in an Urban Medical Center," is funded by a $492,800 grant from Pfizer Inc. It will be overseen by Seemant Chaturvedi, M.D., WSU professor of neurology. Chaturvedi and the team will study the rate of compliance for following recommended guidelines to identify women at risk for stroke by WSU and Wayne State University Physician Group doctors in five WSUPG clinics.
