‘iHOPE’ Coming
New Survivor/Caregiver Program Rolls Out in February

National Stroke Association is excited to announce that our annual stroke survivor and caregiver-focused HOPE After Stroke program will roll out in 2010 as a free online education program called iHope. Previously, this program was delivered through small, in-person meetings in cities across the country. Taking this popular program online allows hundreds more people to access the program’s helpful information. The program will launch in February 2010 and will feature 30- to 60-minute presentations by leaders in the health care field. Topics include:

  •  Explaining stroke
  •  Depression and emotions
  •  Aphasia
  •  Rehabilitation at home
  •  Recurrent stroke prevention

The program will also offer several "Ask the Experts" chats between faculty and the stroke survivor/caregiver audience.

Don’t miss this chance for valuable online education about post-stroke issues. Register today to receive e-mail updates about this program and other National Stroke Association events by visiting stroke.org (click on the Register/Login button on the top left corner) or by calling 1-800-STROKES. If you are new to the stroke survivor role, don’t forget to download or order a copy of our popular Hope: The Stroke Recovery Guide or find other helpful information about post-stroke recovery at stroke.org/HOPE.

How Can You Help?

New technology has let the National Stroke Association bring programs such as iHope to more people than ever before. However, we could never take that step without your help. Taking important live programs into an online platform, as we are doing with various programs and activities this year, allows us to reach five to 10 times more people than with a traditional in-person meeting. Your generosity through donations plays a critical role in allowing us to make technological advances in programs and reaching more people than ever before.
