About the Minnesota Stroke Association

The Minnesota Stroke Association began in 1992 as a non profit organization dedicated to raising awareness of stroke and providing advocacy services. Governed by a 24-member Board of Directors made up of stroke survivors, persons with brain injury, family members and professionals in the field, the mission of the Minnesota Stroke Association is to raise awareness about stroke and enhance the quality of life for all people coping with its sudden and long-term effects.

In 2010, the Minnesota Stroke Association and the Minnesota Brain Injury Alliance merged, bringing together expertise and knowledge to serve individuals with stroke and brain injury in Minnesota.

The Minnesota Stroke Association offers services and supports in a variety of categories.
