  • Message from CorHealth for Stroke Month

    June 4, 2020

    Dear Colleagues,

    June is Stroke Awareness Month, and to show our appreciation, we want to highlight your amazing work. Each week, we will be sharing a downloadable poster to spotlight the creative strategies being used to continue the delivery of high-quality stroke care during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. We will also be sharing a few resources to help you continue to support patients and families, and raise awareness within your communities. Send in your highlights to service@corhealthontario.ca

    We encourage you to share the poster with colleagues, and have made it printer friendly so that you can post it within your hospitals. Click here to view and download the poster.

    We look forward to hearing from you all.

    Thank you.
