Healthcare Professional & Caregiver
Jan is the Stroke Outreach Program Coordinator at The Methodist Hospital (a comprehensive stroke center) in Houston. She was previously a night shift nurse at the Eddy Scurlock Stroke Center at TMH. She travels all over the state and surrounding areas teaching healthcare providers and laypersons about stroke.
She was the one who realized her husband was having a stroke while recovering from a cardiac catheterization. She has lived the "stroke experience" from both sides.

She is the face of stroke in Houston and in the state. She volunteers on the Texas Cardiovascular Council in working to prevent stroke. And this is just the tip of the iceberg...
