  • Post Stroke Hobbies - Call for Submissions

    The Stroke Community is invited to participate in the WSC 2016 exhibit - Post Stroke Hobbies Dear Colleagues, Following the success of the stroke art exhibition at the last World Stroke Congress in Istanbul, we are planning a similar event for hobbies, to be on display at the next congress in Hyderabad in October, 2016. "A hobby is a regular activity that is done for enjoyment, typically during one's leisure time. Hobbies can include collecting themed items and objects, engaging in creative and artistic pursuits, playing sports, or pursuing other amusements." Many stroke survivors find great solace in taking up hobbies which are also an important activity in rehabilitation following their stroke. We feel an exhibition of the different varieties could inspire and encourage others. Read the entire letter here. Greetings, Sandra Levy Secretary Stroke Support Organizations Committee Click here to find out how patients can enter.
