May has always been a favorite month. The weather is warming. The flowers are blooming.
May is also Stroke Awareness Month. My family, as is true for many of you, has been personally impacted by stroke. The science of stroke treatment has evolved and grown over the last couple of decades. In fact, in 2006 at the International Stroke Conference, a paper was released that details all of the components of an effective stroke system of care. It is time to bring those policy changes to Ohio residents.
As we welcome the blooming of the flowers, it is time for the Ohio General Assembly to restart stroke policy efforts. Please join us in reminding them of the personal side of stroke and the importance of bringing research based policy solutions to our state!
