What We Do

Stroke Awareness

Community Speakers Bureau

Our association provides speakers and educational programs for groups of all sizes. Up to 80 percent of strokes can be prevented, and this information can be lifesaving. We also provide speakers for community groups, stroke support groups, and health professionals. Speakers include stroke survivors, health-care experts, and university researchers. There is no charge.

Topics include:

  • What’s New in Stroke Treatment—stem cells and more
