The Alabama Department of Public Health (ADPH) and the University of Alabama at Birmingham are in the midst of a multiyear project to enhance the statewide stroke response system and are letting other states know how to follow the lead and build their own.

The Trauma Communications Center Coordinated Severity-Based Stroke Triage project is funded by a $2.5 million, five-year grant to UAB from the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, one of the National Institutes of Health. The Alabama Statewide Stroke System, based on the state’s successful trauma response system, is unique in the United States. In a paper published in Frontiers of Neurology, UAB researchers laid out their progress to not only improve on Alabama’s stroke response but demonstrate to others how to do it.
