North Carolina Stroke Systems of Care Plan

Summary

  • The North Carolina Division of Public Health’s project builds upon the infrastructure that was already in place through the North Carolina Stroke Advisory Council (SAC) of the Justus-Warren Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention (HDSP) Task Force (Task Force). The resulting plan is a comprehensive and integrated approach that addressed specific needs and reduces disparities. Steps are underway to move the Plan into the implementation phase.

    The Council will reconvene later this year to serve as the entity that will make recommendations for “next steps” toward implementation, drawing on leadership from five distinct workgroups to assist in the process.
