From the President - ISA
Dear Friends and Colleagues,
I am really thankful to all ISA members especially, Past and Present EC Members, other colleagues, friends and family members who have made it possible for me to take this important responsibility of President of Indian Stroke Association.
There is always a team work, I will take all my colleagues and friends to fulfil the objectives of ISA. My main mission is to spread the Awareness of Stroke in our country especially those areas still unvisited.
Next, important, is to make guidelines in a simplified manner in "Acute Stroke Imaging and Thrombolysis".
Finally, lets hope, we all will take ISA beyond the borders of our country also.
Regards to all
From the Secretary's Desk
I would like to thank all the members of Indian Stroke Association (ISA) for electing me as its Secretary. We know that stroke is major cause of morbidity and mortality and it causes huge burden to the individual, society and the country at large.
Indian Stroke Association has a major role in spreading the awareness about stroke amongst the people of our country and to update the knowledge of stroke management to our Physicians. Strengthening the association, community awareness programme about stroke prevention and treatment, establishment of stroke units in as many hospitals in public and private sector, introducing intervention Neurology in the training programme for residents need special focus in the coming years. ISA is hosting the “World Stroke Congress” (WSC 2016) at Hyderabad, which is a proud privilege of our association.
I hope with the collective effort of the executive committee and all the members,
we can take forward the association to greater heights. I earnestly request your whole hearted support and co-operation for all the activities of ISA in future.
