Description

General Overview


This World Stroke Day, we invite Stroke Survivors to the UCL World Stroke Day Forum: a free half-day event of interactive workshops, discussion groups and talks centred on the latest developments in Stroke Research and Rehabilitation.

With representation from World leading clinicians and researchers from UCL and UCLH, alongside charity contributors such as Stroke Association, The National Brain Appeal, SameYou, ARNI Institute, and Different Strokes, this event aims to empower Stroke Survivors to contribute to and influence the future of Stroke Research and Rehabilitation at UCL.

The event will host a number of open talks and workshops, covering topics as diverse as speech rehabilitation, functional rehabilitation, post-stroke fatigue and life as a younger stroke survivor. Alongside this, UCL World Stroke Day Forum provides an expo area offering 10 stalls and the chance to sit down with leaders in the field of stroke research and rehabilitation. The expo provides opportunities to follow up on topics from the featured talks and workshops, gain further support from relevant charities, bodies or research centres, or get involved with research and clinical trials.
