Join Us So Together We Can End Stroke

by Allyson P. on Friday, January 24, 2014

We are looking for stroke survivors and passionate advocates like you to participate in our Together to End Stroke event at the Massachusetts State House on February 25, 2014. This event will help us celebrate 10 years of Massachusetts having a Stroke System of Care and help us work towards continuing to improve and create a comprehensive system that increases the recognition and timely care of stroke to prevent death and disability. Please register to join us and invite other family and friends.

Stories make all the difference when we are meeting with legislators, would you be willing to share your story about how stroke has affected your life either as a survivor, caretaker or passionate advocate?  The day will begin at 10:00 AM with an Advocacy 101 to help prepare you for your legislative meetings. We will provide a boxed lunch and then you will have the opportunity to meet with your legislator or their staff to share your story and express the importance of a Stroke System of Care. Speaking points will be provided as well as a staff person to go on the visits. The day will end by 4:00 PM.

Please join us and register here: Feel free to reach out to me, at (781)-373-4522 or email at with any questions or concerns. Once we hear from you, we will confirm all the details for your participation!
