On average, someone in the U.S. has a stroke every 40 seconds. Every single day, National Stroke

Association is taking steps to support and educate the at-risk public and the stroke community to

change this startling statistic. As 2012 begins, I am heartened as I reflect back on the growth and

many successes making us the leading national organization committed to reducing the incidence

and impact of stroke.

Over the past year, we adopted “Taking Steps” as a theme to guide us in continued growth and

remind us of the millions that we have yet to reach. It’s fitting because we are always taking steps

to equip the public with the knowledge to prevent strokes and to arm those already impacted with

recovery resources. We need you by our side as we take the next steps toward developing an

empowered network that can influence the public at large to become better protected against stroke.

I encourage you to read more about the programs and offerings that make up who National Stroke

Association is today and how we are positioning for the future. With you as our partner, we can

walk together towards a world free of stroke.

Sincerely,

S

MiSSion

To reduce the incidence and impact of stroke by developing compelling education and programs

focused on prevention, treatment, rehabilitation and support for all impacted by stroke.

Brief History

Founded in 1984, National Stroke Association is the only national organization in the U.S. that

focuses 100 percent of its efforts on stroke. National Stroke Association is based in Centennial,

Colo., and sustains itself through individual donations, sponsorships, memberships and grants.

We work diligently to carry out the organization’s strategic plan. In congruence with our mission,

we collaborate with our local and national partners to ensure:

• All people have access to life-saving stroke care no matter their socio-economic status or

geographic location.

• The general public is aware of stroke warning signs and is able to act FAST and save lives.

• Knowledge of controllable stroke risk is part of regular healthcare professional and patient

communications.

• Access to post-stroke resources is readily available.

Stroke survivors and caregivers have a peer-to-peer community that evokes dignity and

provides support to all people affected by stroke.

• The stroke community has a voice on a national and state level to advocate for improved

access, stroke care and rehabilitation resources.


“June 23: Lobby Day gave us a chance to make a difference for

7 million survivors. We shared our stories, our challenges and

hopes that funding would be maintained for researching stroke

and other neurological diseases.” – Maurine, Stroke Survivor


Stroke ADvocAcy NetWork

The Stroke Advocacy Network provides a venue for stroke champions to communicate directly

with elected officials, all so they better understand how healthcare and policy changes can not

only prevent strokes, but also improve lives.

In just over a year, our member advocates have grown from a modest 117 participants to more

than 5,000. Advocates have ignited their communities, leveraged 60 congressional meetings in

Washington, D.C., and sent more than 10,000 communications to Congress.

We are tackling big issues like awareness of high-level stroke risks, implementing stroke care

guidelines, federal funding for stroke research and access to rehabilitation coverage. It is still a long

road ahead to bring stroke to the forefront of a national conversation. But we can, and will, get

there together.


“i got to ask questions no one else

would answer. I learned so much

about stroke from many experts.

It made me a much better

caregiver and I wanted to

share that with other

caregivers I know.”

– Caregiver


viRtuAl heAlth FAiR

On Jan. 19, 2011, National Stroke Association hosted its inaugural Virtual Health Fair. To ensure

accessibility for all people across the country, this stroke educational event was hosted online

using interactive virtual technology. The online setting enabled attendees to learn at their

own pace and gain live, exclusive access to stroke experts and free downloadable education—

all at no cost.

The event featured a webcast series with live expert Q&A across diverse stroke issues, virtual

educational booths and access to hundreds of free educational downloadable materials, prizes,

coupons and video. The live day was recorded and available on demand for three months.

Exceeding all expectations and beating industry standards, more than 2,000 individuals attended,

spending an average of 2.5 hours in the event. People came to learn about stroke but more

importantly, the event led to positive behavior change—31 percent of surveyed participants took

action to better their health based on their experience.


“knowledge is power. the more you spread

information about stroke to the people, the

more they can prevent what happened to me.”

– Mark McEwen, Event Emcee


the rAISe AWArDS

Most people in the U.S. are unable to identify any stroke warning signs. That’s why raising stroke

awareness is a top priority at National Stroke Association—we know that knowledge can save

lives.

The RAISE Awards was instituted in 2011 as a national awards program that recognizes

individuals and groups for taking stroke awareness to new and creative heights. The program

features several categories and encourages people engaged in community-level awareness-

raising activities directly supporting National Stroke Association’s mission.

Nominations opened in May during National Stroke Awareness Month. On Oct. 28, 2011, the

inaugural RAISE Awards dinner event brought together 92 attendees to recognize five winners—

delightfully presented by our celebrity guests Henry Winkler and Mark McEwen.

The goal of recognizing the stroke community for their awareness activities is to encourage others

to either begin or continue their creative awareness outreach, because everything matters—no

matter the size or reach. By supporting the many already engaged in unique and effective ways,

the RAISE Awards program aims to establish a long-term devoted and organized community.


“I tell my story to raise

awareness that stroke can

happen to anyone at any

age.” – Shari


FAceS oF StRoke

Faces of Stroke is a multimedia public awareness campaign that aims to show the personal side of

stroke and educate the public about important stroke facts by sharing personal stories of stroke

champions. The campaign launched in 2011 and hundreds stepped forward to share their

experiences and take on a vital role in the act of raising awareness.

These stories are a great way to prove that no one has to face the aftermath of stroke alone.

From a teenager grappling with her new identity as a survivor to a 52-year-old man who beat a

diagnosis that he would never walk again, the people participating in this campaign have become

a community of inspiration.

As Faces of Stroke continues to grow we expect powerful outcomes, such as building a large,

engaged community of stroke champions educating others by sharing their stories and refining

how the public views stroke. We believe there is much power in being aware and sharing—it will

create a much-needed and powerful role for the stroke community in the act of raising awareness.

WWW.Stroke.org

Millions of people seeking stroke information and up-to-date education have visited National

Stroke Association’s website over the years. We understand the importance of easy access to

stroke education and awareness, which is why we provide that free information on our website.

In a concerted effort to make our website more accessible and user-friendly, National Stroke

Association overhauled www.stroke.org and launched an updated version in late 2010. Coupled

with a new strategic outreach plan, our website received 1.2 million visitors this last year—a 23

percent growth over 2010.

Unique visitors from across the globe came seeking education for themselves and downloadable

stroke information for distribution in their families, workplaces and communities. In fact, a vast

majority of site visitors were seeking information about stroke warning signs—information that

can save lives.

With the demand so high for stroke education, we are compelled to perpetually update our

comprehensive online resources to help us and the communities we serve take steps toward life

without stroke.


May is a time for those involved in stroke to

be a proud and empowered community.


NAtIoNAL Stroke AWAreNeSS MoNth

National Stroke Association received a presidential proclamation in 1989 to honor each May as

National Stroke Awareness Month. In May, we amplify stroke awareness efforts by offering tools,

resources and encouragement to everyone—no matter their reach or abilities—to raise awareness

in their own ways. We also ask everyone to join our national efforts through multimedia

campaigns like Faces of Stroke, so that we reach the public in an integrated fashion.

In 2011, a new online Stroke Awareness Resource Center was launched, resulting in the fifth most

trafficked webpage on www.stroke.org during May. The Center features an awareness e-kit, tools

for how to host events, the Faces of Stroke campaign and much more.

StrokeSMArt MAgAzINe

This free publication is published five times a year and filled with inspirational real-life stories of

people impacted by stroke, as well as caregiver experiences. The magazine updates readers on

new science and helpful products and tips for recovery and lifestyle. A 2011 survey revealed that

93 percent of readers look forward to reading each issue.

National Stroke Association strives to raise stroke awareness and become a partner in stroke

recovery to survivors and caregivers. StrokeSmart helps us take the necessary steps to reach

even further into the communities we serve. By providing free subscriptions to individuals, support

groups, hospitals and rehabilitation centers, each issue of the magazine reaches 100,000 who

need it across the U.S.


“outstanding presentation in

support of telestroke; gave

me data to support improving

our system” – Participant


pRoFeSSionAl educAtion

National Stroke Association has always taken steps to ensure that the at-risk public and stroke

survivors have access to the best possible stroke care. During the last year, we conducted 28

professional education programs touching nearly 10,000 healthcare professionals in an effort to

assure they have the most up-to-date information on best practices and research breakthroughs.

Our 2011 programs focused on important medical topics such as how to reduce the impact of

in-hospital strokes, improving recurrent stroke prevention methods, optimizing clinical and

fiscal stroke center performance, how to build and sustain a telestroke network, best practices

for patient care focusing on nurse education and much more.


“As a nurse practitioner working with stroke

survivors and their families, I consider

National Stroke Association a partner in this

endeavor.” – Marta


pRoFeSSionAl MeMbeRShipS

National Stroke Association has made excellence in stroke care our passion. Through three

key membership programs, we are reaching healthcare professionals across the continuum of

stroke services.

Stroke Center Network was developed 25 years ago for health organizations committed to

developing centers of excellence for stroke care. In 2011, National Stroke Association boasted

more than 200 participating organizations.

Stroke Rehabilitation and Recovery Network is an association of organizations committed to

quality stroke rehabilitative care and supporting survivors and their families through the

challenges of recovery. At the end of 2011, we had recruited more than 50 centers.

Professional Society is our individual membership program for individual healthcare professionals

seeking stroke training. Nurses, physicians, rehab staff and even students have found great

benefits in this membership.

Representing more than 4,500 of the healthcare professionals we touch nationwide, these

memberships are a testament that we are making a real difference in reducing the impact and

incidence of stroke.


“If the hospital my father went

to did not have telestroke

technology, I could have lost

him forever. When you’re treating

a stroke every minute counts.”

– Dr. Aaron Heide, Neurologist


teleStRoke

According to the American Medical Association, there is only one neurologist for every 25,000

people in the U.S. Telestroke is an innovative technology that uses Internet video and electronic

information sharing to connect hospitals to a remote neurologist, thereby bringing faster stroke

diagnosis to rural and underserved areas. In 2011, National Stroke Association began investing in a

study to improve and increase the use of telestroke that will vastly increase the reach of expert

doctors and neurologists.

grAND rouNDS

We offer up-to-date education on emerging science and best practices through many channels,

including live education programs called grand rounds. Healthcare facilities across the country

offer grand rounds opportunities as a way to provide staff with continuing education credits while

focusing on important topics. Our program outcomes reveal that on average, 95 percent of

participants see improvements in stroke knowledge. More than 80 percent of participants claimed

they would immediately implement and update their practice to improve patient outcomes.

In 2011, grand rounds programs included:

• Post–Stroke Spasticity: An Update on

Diagnosis & Treatment Research

• Managing Atrial Fibrillation to

Prevent Stroke

Stroke SurvIvor AND cAregIver eDucAtIoN

There are more than 7,000,000 stroke survivors living in the U.S. But this number does not totally

reflect the scope of stroke. Stroke is often a family event, and millions of spouses, parents and

children live with and care for stroke survivors.

Recovery from stroke can be a lifelong process. For many people, it begins with formal

rehabilitation, which can restore independence by improving physical, mental and emotional

functions. At National Stroke Association, it is important to provide support for individuals and

families affected by stroke and to prove that there is always hope.

National Stroke Association creates programs that target the greatest areas of need: dealing

with the effects of stroke—both how to recover and how to cope, becoming a patient advocate,

returning to work, preventing another stroke, medication adherence, caregiver needs and

much more.

In addition to our free, accessible programs, National Stroke Association also offers a large

support group registry including more than 700 support groups nationwide that constitute a

massive network across the U.S.

ihope

iHOPE was developed to empower stroke survivors and caregivers by equipping them with the

knowledge to take an active role in promoting post-stroke recovery. iHOPE is a series of webinars

and Ask the Experts Q&A sessions led by experts on stroke recovery issues. The program is designed

for an individual experience—allowing users to learn at their own pace and gain specific knowledge

for personal needs. Content for each event is developed by an expert in the field, offering

information about stroke-related conditions and how to assess, treat and manage them at home.

With more than 2,800 participants, iHOPE is a continuing success. On average, 86 percent of

participants agreed that the programs helped change or improve their perspective and practice

of stroke recovery and rehabilitation.

iHOPE is available free and on demand to anyone interested in learning more about stroke.

The program includes 15 archived webinars, three Ask the Experts sessions and two discussion

guides on topics such as:

• Aphasia

• Atrial Fibrillation

• Depression and Other

Emotional Issues

• Fatigue

• Medication Adherence

• Mobility

• Nutrition Post-Stroke

cAreLIvINg

Most stroke survivors are discharged from hospitals to their homes where they are cared for by

a caregiver. A caregiver’s role may start immediately post-stroke or evolve over time—no matter

when the role begins, it can be challenging.

A recent study found that between one-third and one-half of family caregivers reported being

inadequately prepared for the experience of caring for a stroke survivor. National Stroke

Association is committed to assisting caregivers during their journey alongside the survivor.

A 2010 quantitative survey of caregivers found that they want more information and support

when it comes to time management, goal setting, financial issues, self-care and strategies for

caring for the stroke survivor.

Careliving is a program designed specifically to help support the millions of caregivers of stroke

survivors. It features a comprehensive Caregiver Guide and Careliving Community, an online

social network that boasts nearly 1,000 members. Additionally, several caregiving-focused

webinars will be available throughout 2012 with live expert Q&As.

Careliving gives caregivers information and support that enables them to care better for stroke

survivors and themselves, thus helping to reduce the impact of stroke on families and friends.

WALk WIth DINAh

In 1998, the Suridis family lost their mother to complications from a stroke. In 1999, they began

a legacy. To keep their mother’s memory alive, raise awareness and battle against stroke, the

family began the Annual Walk with Dinah. Fourteen years later their walk is still going strong.

On Nov. 5, 2011, the family raised an astounding $14,000 to support stroke awareness outreach

at National Stroke Association. To date, the Suridis Family has partnered with us to raise more

than $150,000 to support our mission.

Year after year, our endurance team participants raise awareness and funds for stroke while

New York City Marathon challenge and raised $93,000 to help fight stroke.
