The purpose of this article is to demonstrate the effectiveness of engaging community partners in the conduct of environmental health research, and in the development of DD strategies for individuals as well as the community at large. Scientists should include community partners in the development of DD strategies to enhance translation of the research findings, and support the right of study participants to know their individual results.

Despite little initial involvement in development of the CTSA program, there has been moderate interaction between CTSAs and emergency care. There is considerable interest in participating in a CTSA consortium-based emergency care translational research network.

Given the potential societal benefits, continued efforts to deploy telemedicine appear warranted. Aligning the incentives between those who would have to fund the up-front technology investments and those who will benefit over time from reduced ongoing health care expenses will be necessary to fully realize the benefits of telemedicine for stroke care.
