National Stroke Association has embraced the need for recovery resources that are easily accessible, free and convenient for you.
Our new online education resources include Web presentations that are easy to watch from the comfort of your personal computer. They cover a variety of recovery issues and problems you might be facing, from depression to sexuality to movement disorders. During a Web presentation you will be hearing a presenter talk through your computer speakers and seeing a coinciding presentation on your computer screen. Learn easily and at your own pace while gaining expert information, tips and resources from our recovery experts.
To participate, all it takes is access to a computer with audio (speakers) and a reliable connection to the Internet. Read more about computer system requirements below.
