WHAT WE DO
FOR HEALTHCARE PROVIDERS
Stroke is the number one cause of disability and the second leading cause of death in the world. There are two major categories of stroke - occlusive and hemorrhagic. Hemorrhagic strokes, including aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage, are immediately life threatening and often avoidable.
Unfortunately, the general public is not well educated about the signs and symptoms of stroke. Healthcare professionals need better stroke training and resources to treat stroke. The JCCNF works towards resolving these deficiencies.
The Judith C. Crosby Neuroscience Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to stroke education, outreach and research. The foundation was created in memory of our namesake, Judith C. Crosby who died from a subarachnoid hemorrhage secondary to a ruptured intracranial aneurysm.
The JCCNF supports stroke patients and neuroscience healthcare providers by providing educational activities, scholarships, clinical research and patient outreach and support groups.
