The Campaign for Stroke Care at Stanford Health Care-Valley Care

Join forces with Stanford Neurology to develop a stroke program in the Tri-Valley.


Every 40 seconds, someone suffers a stroke in the United States. Stroke is the third leading cause of death in California. With the average age of stroke patients dropping to 45 years old, there is now an increased demand for advanced treatments and timely access to quality care.
