Stroke Research Funding Announcement for North Carolina

North Carolina’s application to support the first statewide study of comprehensive post-stroke treatment has been selected for funding by the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI).  This grant will bring $14 million (over five years) to North Carolina to examine whether stroke survivors’ daily functioning and quality of life can be improved and family caregiver stress reduced by providing comprehensive post-acute stroke care. Congratulations to three researchers from the MAA, Dr. Pamela Duncan (Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center), Dr. Cheryl Bushnell (Wake Forest Baptist Stroke Center), and MAA Board President Dr. Wayne Rosamond (University of North Carolina’s Gillings School of Global Public Health) who are the lead investigators for the study.
