Stroke Onward’s co-founder Debra Meyerson, PhD was named the American Stroke Association’s (ASA) 2023 Stroke Survivor Hero in recognition of her efforts to use her experience as a stroke survivor to bring awareness, education, and inspiration to people across the country.

For information, read our press release or visit the American Stroke Association’s site.

During the summer of 2022, Stroke Onward’s co-founders and a team of survivors cycled across the country to raise awareness about stroke and aphasia.
