Establishing the Stroke Rehabilitation Center of Southeastern Wisconsin
Return to Listing
While significant progress has been made in preventing strokes, fewer resources have been committed to improving rehabilitation for stroke survivors, who face significant barriers to recovering mobility and communication skills after neurologic stroke damage. While some survivors recovery fully, the majority live with chronic post-stroke deficits, which can involve motor skills, speech, thinking, memory, personality and emotional dysregulation. The temporary or permanent loss of independence due to stroke impacts families in addition to survivors. Through this award, partners aim to improve functional outcomes for stroke survivors by creating the Stroke Rehabilitation Center of Southeastern Wisconsin, which will advance translational research in the region.
