2103 RAISE Award medallion

Voter's Choice

Alexis Burnett

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.


Alexis is always looking for opportunities to promote stroke awareness. She enjoys her job of educating the public about stroke and taking care of stroke survivors. Her goal this year was to educate the community through song and video. She spent many evenings writing the lyrics and remixing them to a popular song, Everybody Talks by Neon Trees. Talking about serious topic like stroke can be difficult. Finding catchy and fun ways to get the message out can be challenging and Alexis was very creative in accomplishing that goal. North Hills Hospital’s Primary Stroke Program created an educational video to demonstrate to patients what happens to them at the hospital when they come in with stroke symptoms.
