Welcome New Advocacy Network

National Stroke Association introduces the Stroke Advocacy Network—a new grassroots organization tackling issues that can make a positive impact on the lives of stroke survivors, their caregivers and their families.

There is hope after stroke. It is undeniable that stroke survivors face an array of unexpected challenges, but survivors also experience new insights and meaningful successes. While every stroke survivor’s experience is different, National Stroke Association believes that there is great power in celebrating successes and sharing life-changing stories.

Through the Stroke Advocacy Network, we have the opportunity to change how people view stroke, survivors and to influence public policy and legislation. But we need your help.

Join us at the Stroke Advocacy Network Action Center at stroke.org/actioncenter and add your voice to this important cause.
