2014 RAISE Award medallion

Voter's Choice

Winter Haven Hospital Stroke Support Group

This award honors an individual or group representing the best effort in raising stroke awareness. The winner of this award was chosen through an online voting contest.


This support group provides monthly connection with the community for those who have recently experienced stroke. Although transportation and resources are limited in this community the group is well attended each month. Besides regular attendees, the group sees regular visitors who winter in Florida and come back year after year. The group is committed to learning about up-to-date research, resources, and advocacy for stroke survivors. Their activities are both educational and social and provide empowerment for survivors and caregivers. The group might be small, consisting of 15-20 attendees, but they pack power in their advocacy efforts for stroke research and resources and in empowering stroke survivors to engage in their communities and maximize their independence.
