This lecture will describe a novel intervention by Olajide Williams, MD, called "Hip Hop Stroke" that targets inner city children as mediators in the chain of stroke recovery. Even within economically disadvantaged under-resourced communities, there are simple steps that can be taken to improve personal health, but often too many lack the basic knowledge, skills, and motivation to take these steps. The intervention bridges the world of music and entertainment with NIH-funded research in order to empower communities to combat stroke.
This event is part of our Brain Insight Lecture Series, supported by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation.
