    Minority groups comprise a major segment of the estimated more than 34 million Americans without insurance coverage and also the underinsured.

    Neurologic disease and neurologic complications of the major causes of morbidity and mortality affect minorities protracted by limited access to health care.

    Hypertension, a major cause of stroke in the black population, is just one example of the impact of accessibility to intervention in central nervous system disease.

    Health statistics note the persisting gap between minority groups and the nation's norms for life expectancy.
