The Stroke Association - Amazing Brains
The Stroke Association is a charity that supports people to rebuild their lives after suffering from a stroke. They are there to provide specialist support, fund critical research and campaign to ensure people who are affected by stroke get the best care and support they can to move forward in their recovery.
Chattertons were lucky enough to be invited to attend The Stroke Associations Amazing Brains event that was held at the infamous Francis Crick Institute in London on Thursday 19th May. This year's focus was on 'Thinking and memory after stroke'. This inspiring event was hosted by actor Mark Charnock, who plays Marlon Dingle in Emmerdale.
There were three incredible speakers who delivered presentations on their perspective on the impact that stroke can have on memory and thinking. Dr Terry Quinn, Professor Audrey Bowen and Professor Adewale Adebajo MBE spoke about the research both they, and their students have been looking into; ways in which they can improve services for people with neurological and psychological difficulties and the importance and difference that research can make to rebuild the lives of people after stroke.
The Stroke Association heavily rely on funding from the public, charitable trusts and companies to help push their research in the right direction. It was touching to hear the ways in which Chattertons have been able to help this charity by choosing to support them as our Charity of the Year 2022.
