National Stroke Awareness Month 2020 – STRAC Collaboration

For several years, the Departments of Neurology and Neurosurgery at UT Health have been working with the Southwest Texas Regional Advisory Council (STRAC) to create an organized stroke care system. One important milestone within that process has been the recent implementation of pre-hospital stroke triage in Bexar County.

By evaluating people with certain symptoms and risk factors sooner, doctors can save more lives and improve outcomes for stroke patients. This innovative coordination between health care providers could eventually impact how stroke care is managed on a national level.
