Date: October 15th, 2021 in Geriatrics, Research, UH Manoa
Against the backdrop of the diverse minority-majority state of Hawaii, this study seeks to better characterize associations between idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH) with sociodemographic variables and medical comorbidities. Our results not only better characterize IIH, but also highlight socioeconomic and racial disparities in diagnosis.
