Supporting Patients Following StrokeSlice

After leaving the hospital, recovery from stroke often continues. For these stroke survivors, IU Health Bloomington hosts the Stroke Education Series/Support Group, open to all stroke survivors and their loved ones. Our stroke program educator leads the group and each session covers a different topic from our expert guest speakers. Time will also be available during every meeting for discussion where survivors and their loved ones can ask questions, or share successes or challenges.
