National Stroke Association's mission to reduce the incidence and impact of stroke is enabled by the generous support of our Corporate Alliance Board (CAB), an elite group of industry partners with a mutual interest in stroke awareness and prevention.

Through Corporate Alliance sponsorship and grants, National Stroke Association develops educational programs about all aspects of stroke for the general public, medical professionals, and those touched personally by stroke.

National Stroke Association thanks our CAB members for their dedication to National Stroke Association's mission.

We invite you to join National Stroke Association in our efforts to reduce the incidence and impact of stroke by becoming a member of our Corporate Alliance Board.  Distinct levels of sponsorship allow you to select a commitment that is consistent with your goals and resources.
