Project Update: Strong Heart Stroke Study 2

The Strong Heart Stroke Study 2 (SHSS2), or Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center-Satellite Core Expansion: Cerebrovascular Disease and its Consequences in American Indians (ADRC – SCE: CDCAI), is entering its last year of participant recruitment and data collection. We have recruited 340 participants and expect to recruit at least 50 more participants by July or August 2019. Once this stage is finished, the team will complete data entry, data cleaning, and data management using statistical analytic software and/or programming tools, STATA and/or R. The team hopes the study will increase knowledge of Alzheimer’s warning signs and link American Indian elders with needed services.
