Summary: The Hmong are an ethnic group from Southeast Asia who migrated in large numbers to the United States after the end of the Vietnam War and are now clustered in several parts of the country, including our city. Based on a retrospective review of medical records and on our anecdotal experience, we suspected that there was a gap in stroke knowledge in our Hmong patients. This stroke knowledge survey was intended to uncover any knowledge gaps within the Hmong community before engaging in community awareness activities. Not only did the survey identify a knowledge gap, it also revealed significant linguistic and cultural gaps that we believe are important to share with the reader.
