What NOMAS Has Done So Far

Doctor consultationNOMAS is evaluating reasons for race-ethnic differences in stroke incidence and confirming findings of the protective, beneficial effects of physical activity and moderate, daily alcohol intake.

NOMAS has found that Caribbean Hispanics from the Northern Manhattan community had strokes at a younger age than blacks and whites. There was also a higher rate of stroke-related death in Caribbean Hispanic and black patients than in white patients. NOMAS continues to investigate risk factors for stroke and enhance the Hispanic community’s awareness of stroke prevention.
