Norton Neuroscience Institute conference will offer an afternoon of exclusively online sessions for those who have had a stroke or care for someone who has.
As you or a loved one recover from stroke, changing needs can present new challenges or require adjustments in the care plan, especially since patients who’ve had a stroke are at higher risk for another. The 2020 Neuroscience Expo will offer an afternoon of exclusively online sessions for those who have had a stroke or care for someone who has.
This free event allows individuals living with a neurological condition, family or caregivers, support care providers and others a way to connect with speakers from Norton Neuroscience Institute and other stroke-related specialties for live presentations.
This year’s track for life after stroke features the following sessions:
