13th Annual Stroke Symposium
Please join us for the 13th Annual Stroke Symposium presented by Prisma Health-Upstate!
This event will be held live and is designed to cover topics that are addressed in the Joint Commission Disease-Specific Care requirements for stroke center certification and to follow the published guidelines primarily from the American Heart Association and American Stroke Association for acute ischemic stroke, intracerebral hemorrhage, and subarachnoid hemorrhage. Additionally, this event is designed to help support our stroke survivor community by raising funds to support community events for stroke survivors and caregivers. The event will also highlight the impact of stroke services on stroke survivors.
This educational activity aims to meet the educational needs of providers and other clinical staff offering cerebrovascular and stroke care in the region.
Speakers include Prisma Health physician leaders in the fields of emergency medicine, neuroendovascular surgery, vascular neurology, neurocritical care, and rehabilitation. Nationally renowned leaders in cerebrovascular and stroke care will highlight hyperacute stroke care and neuromodulation for stroke recovery.
