Each year in June, National Stroke Association brings the stroke community together to raise our collective voice in the halls of Congress on issues important to the stroke community. This action shows our numbers and our passion for preventing stroke and lessening its impact on the lives of today’s and future stroke survivors.Take action today and make your voice heard in the halls of Congress on stroke-related issues and legislation. Last year, network members from every state sent more than 4,450 messages to Congress. Help us beat that number by sending messages to your members of Congress today!
We’re focusing on five actions Congress can take right now to improve the lives of stroke survivors, caregivers, family members and the healthcare professionals who care for them. These include:
Repeal the caps on Medicare therapy services
Help stroke survivors return to work
Support advancements in stroke diagnosis, treatment and recovery
Fund the BRAIN Initiative
Learn more about stroke by joining a stroke- or neurology-related group
Learn more about these actions and urge your members of Congress to take one or more of them today!
