Yesterday was day two of this year's UK Stroke Assembly South event in Stansted, Essex. Some of our researchers spoke at the event, sharing important insights into key areas of stroke research. There was also a stand showcasing our EVA Park project, which aims to help stroke survivors with aphasia regain communication skills and confidence.
Today, we held an exciting day of training for our early-career researchers about Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) in stroke research. The day was chaired by Laura Piercy, our Research Engagement Officer.
