The Stroke Advocacy Network’s Virtual Lobby Days event is happening from Monday, June 17 through Friday, June 28. Mark your calendars to participate in this two-week event designated to make the stroke community’s voice heard in Congress on several important stroke-related issues.
As a member of the stroke community, you’re in a unique position to tell your members of Congress why they should learn about stroke and what you expect them to do to support stroke survivors, caregivers, family members and the healthcare professionals who care for them. Be one of thousands of voices on Capitol Hill in June talking about stroke! This year, we’re asking Congress to:
Repeal the caps on Medicare therapy services
Support funding for stroke-related medical research and the BRAIN Initiative
Support return-to-work legislation (introduced by Senator Mark Kirk (R-IL), himself a stroke survivor)
Watch for ways you can participate in Virtual Lobby Days beginning on June 17!
