REGARDS is a 30,000 member cohort of white and black community-dwelling adults from all over the 48 contiguous US states who were recruited between 2003-2007 and who are being followed for stroke and heart disease endpoints longitudinally. Endpoints are rigorously adjudicated, including cause of death. Numerous opportunities exist to develop studies using these data.
