2016 Minnesota Stroke Conference

 

It’s Stroke Month! Register for the 2016 Minnesota Stroke Conference

May is National Stroke Awareness Month

Strokes can affect people of all ages and backgrounds. In fact, every 40 seconds a person in the U.S. suffers a stroke.

Stroke is Minnesota’s fifth-leading cause of death, accounting for more than 5% of all deaths. In 2014, about 2.2% of Minnesota adults reported ever having had a stroke in their lifetime – that’s more than 90,000 people.

That’s why the Department of Health continues working with partners across the state to improve stroke care in our communities in order to reduce the impact of stroke on all Minnesotans.

Join us on June 6, 2016

The stroke conference brings together over 250 staff and other partners to share best practice strategies and tools for improving stroke care in Minnesota. It also is an opportunity to network with other health care professionals, public health professionals and stroke advocates.
