2014 RAISE Award medallion

Outstanding Group

Bergan Stroke Team

This award honors a group of people making a commitment to raising stroke awareness on a local or national level.


This stroke team wanted to make an impact on a group of people who have limited access to healthcare and education.  They collaborated with the Siena/Francis House Homeless Shelter to provide patient screening and education during the offered evening meals (serving nearly 350 children and adults). Services offered included blood pressure screenings, stroke education, discussions on medication adherence and risk reduction, and setting up referrals for follow-up. Over the months, the participants have celebrated improvements such as lower blood pressure, key to reducing the risk of stroke.
