We envision a world where stroke is minimized and ultimately eliminated as a major health problem. We look forward to a world where risk factors are reduced and rapid treatment is obtained. We strive to change the landscape of healthcare delivery so that optimal care and maximum recovery are achieved for those who do suffer a stroke.
The American Stroke Association is a division of the American Heart Association that focuses on reducing risk, disability and death from stroke through research, education, fund raising and advocacy. The American Heart Association created the American Stroke Association after many years of increasing emphasis on stroke. We spend more money on stroke research and programs than any other organization except the federal government.
