Since 1999, the Kentucky & Southern Indiana Stroke Association has educated over 16,000 people, as well as produced its OWN stroke awareness event each May. The association also works with stroke survivor and caregiver groups and helps sponsor activities throughout the year. We provide scholarship money yearly for survivors to attend stroke camp. The agency also houses a stroke resource library for the public and operates a speaker's bureau to educate the general public and stroke community. Survivors and caregivers are encouraged to volunteer at events. The association’s office is located in Louisville and the agency serves the Kentucky and Southern Indiana area. All funds and donations remain with the local organization. The agency participates in 30 to 100 health fairs yearly in order to make the public aware of the importance of quick recognition of a stroke and the need for rapid treatment.
