This is a working registry of a longitudinal cohort of Hispanics, Native Americans, and
non-Hispanic whites (as controls) for tracking of vascular disease endpoints. Blood samples
collected for ongoing pilot projects as well as specimen banking. Pilot studies are
observational and involve risk measures for stroke, atherosclerosis, and vascular
inflammatory responses. Questionnaires on demographics, risk factors, and vascular disease
history are performed. No interventions proposed as yet.
Hispanics and Native Americans are oversampled, but non-Hispanic whites will be included
for comparison purposes. No other exclusion criteria.
