New Stroke Advocacy Video Coming Soon!

 

Yesterday, staff at the Albany, NY office met with local paramedics and AHA volunteers to create a new video highlighting the advances in stroke treatment and why it is important for states to have stroke systems of care, including designation of stroke hospitals.  In New York, the AHA/ASA is advocating for legislation to designate three levels of stroke hospitals and coordinate EMS response and transport.  on the importance of Stroke Designation Legislation.   

Each person interviewed discussed why changes in stroke treatment options make can save lives and reduce disability if patients are transported quickly to the  a hospital equipped to treat stroke. 

Paul Symansky the AHA Stroke Ambassador for the Capital Region of New York, talked about her own experience of having a stroke and how appropriate and timely treatment helped her get back to living a productive, happy life.

Stay tuned for the release of this short video coming in May!
