Frazier Family Coalition for Stroke Education & Prevention
A collaboration between Jefferson Health and Temple Health, promotes the health of the community through a multifaceted program aimed at reducing the number of strokes — an especially urgent need, since stroke is the fourth-highest cause of death in Philadelphia.
Comprehensive Stroke Center at Jefferson
When a stroke happens, you need fast, expert care. Jefferson Health is one of the nation's leaders in stroke prevention, diagnosis, treatment and research. Jefferson have the greatest number of board-certified and dual-trained specialists to manage even the most complex stroke cases across the patient journey.
The following are links to information in support of the patient journey.

The most unique aspects of this mission are the communities that partner with the RNI, known as AMP2. AMP2 represents the Athletics, Military (and first responders), Patient, and general Population communities. While each of these communities have specific needs, there is an intersection in health, wellness, performance, and longevity that applies to all individuals. The Human Performance Innovation Center and all our partners are after improved “performance.”
Moss Rehabilitation Research Institute (MRRI) is an internationally recognized institute for rehabilitation and neuroscience research whose mission spans a translational “pipeline” from theory-driven research to clinical treatments in neurorehabilitation. MRRI performsbasic research, framed by theoretical perspectives that maintain contact with the complexities of real-world function and lead to advances in neurorehabilitation assessment and treatment. They also house the MRRI Research Registry, a patient registry to connect patients with future neurorehabilitation research.
The New York University (NYU) Data Catalog facilitates researchers’ discovery of data by providing a searchable and browsable online collection of datasets. Rather than functioning as a data repository, the catalog is a digital way-finder for researchers looking for datasets relevant to their work. It includes datasets generated by NYU researchers as well as publicly available and licensed datasets that are generated at external organizations, e.g. the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
PCORnet is a national resource where health data, research expertise, and patient insights are available to deliver fast, trustworthy answers that advance health outcomes.
The All of Us Research Program is inviting one million people across the U.S. to help build one of the most diverse health databases in history. We welcome participants from all backgrounds. Researchers will use the data to learn how our biology, lifestyle, and environment affect health. This may one day help them find ways to treat and prevent disease.
Research Action for Health Network (REACHnet) is a partnership of health systems, academic centers, and public health organizations that constitute an innovative data network for conducting efficient, multi-site research.
Veteran's Administration (VA) Informatics and Computing Infrastructure (VINCI) is an initiative to improve researchers' access to VA data and to facilitate the analysis of those data while ensuring Veterans' privacy and data security. VINCI welcomes all researchers in the VA community to explore the environment and tools available.
