JACKSONVILLE, FL (Amy Edmunds, Executive Director, Young Stroke conference, Tuesday, Dec 13 to Wednesday, Dec 14, 2016). I attended the Young Stroke Conference and it was great with scientists, doctors, researchers and clinicians speaking every half hour for two days straight including Dr. Lisa Edmonds from Columbia University! Seriously, I attended 20+ presentations…plus attending Brooks Rehabilitation Hospital (at the Neuro Recovery Center), Brooks Aphasia Center and the Brooks ClubHouse. I also got a chance to meet with Debi McGill, Editor-in-Chief, Stroke Connection magazine. Several stroke survivors were also authors (including me) who shared a roundtable discussion. The conversations were wonderful with many people who heard me talk about stroke survivors becoming stroke educators, helping themselves as well as others.
