FALL 2010


Freshly Redesigned, Updated National Stroke Association Website

Our mission is driven by designing programs and providing services that make a difference in the lives of stroke survivors, caregivers and their families. Our redesigned website makes it easier for you to get the information you rely on. Become one of our first visitors. Not only is the website more accessible, but we’ve also added some new ways you can get involved online including our Stroke Advocacy Network, event-hosting tools and personal fundraising tools.

Visit the new www.stroke.org
