The Community Initiatives to Eliminate Stroke Program (CITIES)
FY 2004-2007 Grantees

OMH has awarded 2 million for 3 grants under the Secretary's Stroke Belt Elimination Initiative.

The Community Initiatives to Eliminate Stroke Program (CITIES) is intended to increase community awareness and knowledge of hypertension and stroke, enhance early detection of high blood pressure and stroke with early referral to care, increase the community's adoption and use of lifestyle behaviors known to promote prevention and control of hypertension and stroke, reduce the death rate by stroke in targeted communities, and enhance blood pressure control rates among community persons who are known to have hypertension and who are members of a health plan or otherwise visit health systems, clinics, or medical offices. The three grantees are: Medical University of South Carolina, Charlestown, SC; Forsyth Medical Center Foundation, Winston-Salem, NC; and University of Alabama at Birmingham, Birmingham, AL.
