Dear ISA Members

It gives me great pleasure to communicate with you all, as I take over as President of our fabulous association. I feel privileged to lead the Indian Stroke Association (ISA), a focused group, involved in stroke care.
As we all know, stroke is a leading cause of disability and death not only in India, but globally. There are many challenges to providing stroke care in India, and as President, I would like to focus on the following:
Increasing and improving awareness about stroke, especially in rural areas, amongst masses at large and also amongst physicians Focusing on not just the acute and chronic stroke care, but also including rehabilitation to ensure that patients get the best possible support, care and recovery.
Involving every member of ISA to contribute to improving stroke care and also strengthening   ISA in terms of activities and membership.
I invite you all to participate in this combined vision, so as to improve stroke care in India, and support the newly elected Executive Committee which is young, energetic and vibrant.
I look forward to receiving your inputs on activities you would like to carry out, in line with the above vision, and invite you to email me on * &*

Dear Esteemed Indian Stroke Association (ISA) Members,

As the Secretary, it is my responsibility to ensure effective communication with all our ISA members.
Firstly, I would like to express my gratitude to each one of you for your continued support and dedication to our mission of stroke prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation across India. Your commitment plays a vital role in our collective efforts to combat stroke-related challenges in our communities.
I am pleased to inform you that our association has been actively engaged in various initiatives aimed at raising awareness about stroke prevention. From organizing educational campaigns to facilitating training programs for healthcare professionals, we have been striving to make a positive impact on the landscape of stroke care in our country.
In line with our commitment to promoting excellence in stroke research and clinical practice, we have achieve long cherished goals which include a) National Stroke Accreditation Program b) Clinical Stroke Fellowship (FNB) for 2 years by National Board Examinations (NBE) and c) Joint Academic Sessions with ISC – American Stroke Association (AHA/ASA) and many others. These platforms will serve as valuable opportunities for knowledge sharing, networking, and skill enhancement within the stroke community.
As we move forward, I assure you that the Indian Stroke Association remains dedicated to advancing the field of stroke medicine and enhancing the quality of care for individuals affected by stroke. Together, we can make a difference and create a brighter future for stroke patients and their families.
Thank you once again for your unwavering support and collaboration. Should you have any questions, suggestions, or concerns, please feel free to reach out to me or any member of the executive committee.

Jai Hind!!!
