2016 RAISE Award: Outstanding Group

University of Colorado Hospital Stroke Program

The University of Colorado Hospital (UCH) has a small stroke team that has made a big impact, especially in the last year. This group has worked tirelessly to provide personalized education and attention to stroke patients and families, and reach their community through education and awareness activities. With a new team and leadership, the UCH Stroke Program has participated in community health events, revamped the stroke support group and stroke survivors group, and held their bi-annual implementation of the Lifelong Education and Advocacy Program (LEAP). This group regularly provides stroke lunch-and-learn opportunities to companies and their employees. They have also taken their awareness efforts to community events, like Strike Out Stroke and the Denver Broncos Health Fair. The UCH Stroke Program won’t overlook an a chance to educate people about stroke, even conducting EMS outreach, teaching Advanced Stroke Life Support®, conducting outreach to local religious centers, and connecting with people at countless other stroke education opportunities.
