Kentuckiana Stroke Association is fulfilling such an important mission! We have made strides in reducing stroke mortality but incidence is not decreasing. Stroke is the #1 cause of disability and is 80% preventable. Education to the public about how to control risk factors and prevent stroke is indispensable! We need more of this work in the community!

I have been serving on the Kentucky and So. IN Stroke Association Board since we started the chapter of NSA here. NSA was great to help get us started. We have continued to grow and continue to fulfill our mission to provide education regarding stroke risks, symptoms and prevention. I work with stroke patients every day in my job as a rehab social worker and know how important it is to educate our community, our state, and our region. KSISA will continue to strive to educate and assist those impacted by stroke.

This nonprofit does an exceptional job working with dedicated volunteers and only one full-time staff member, its executive director, who provides exemplary leadership that uses the organization's limited resources to their best advantage. The education outreach through health providers and stroke survivors is first-rate.

This organization's dedication to educating Kentucky and Southern Indiana residents about stroke is outstanding. No opportunity is ever missed to have representatives appear at community and organizational gatherings to provide information that will inform and educate. Led by a dynamic one-woman executive director, Carrie Orman, the Kentucky and Southern Indiana Stroke Association's outreach and effectiveness are even more astounding. She has the support of a cadre of volunteers and professionals who always answer her calls to rally in support of stoke education.

My husband had a stroke at the age of 53 that left him unable to continue his career as a commercial pilot. We got involved with the KY and SI Stroke Association and have attended some of their events. This organization provides education and support for stroke survivors and caregivers as well as raising awareness about preventing and identifying stroke.

There is even a special group for younger stroke survivors.

Carrie Orman and the Kentuckiana Stroke Association does a fantastic job as a resource center to the public in general and to stroke survivors and their families.

Providing speakers and information on prevention, support groups, health fares, community events and much more. I highly recommend you contact them if you have a family member dealing with the effects of a stroke.
