Dr. Parmar's research interest focuses on epidemiology, outcomes, and disparities in cardiovascular diseases. He has served as the Science Director of the Outcomes Unit for the NIH-supported study, the Reasons for Geographic and Racial Disparities in Stroke-MI (REGARDS-MI), which is one of the largest cohort studies encompassing prospective tracking of over 30,000 participants from the conterminous U.S. Dr. Parmar was also the first to survey health care needs of the American Indian tribal members, preparing a 62-page report, which is the first to document the health status of Alabama Indians.
