The inaugural AFAN/WFN E-Learning Day was held on October 10th. There were over 1100 registrants, of whom more than 500 remained online throughout the day. Feedback received so far has been overwhelmingly positive. While the reach was originally intended to be mainly into Africa, it was also global and therefore congruent not only with the aims of the AFAN, the WFN and the WSO but also with the American and the European Academies of Neurology. The topic was "Stroke a Treatable and Preventable Disease" with 4 Sessions:
The World Stroke Organisation was proud to contribute to this important educational event. WSO President-elect Marc Fisher chaired a session on imaging in which Professor Bruce Campbell (co-chair WSO Young Stroke Professionals Committee) delivered a lecture on Basic Brain and Neurovascular Imaging in Stroke. Prof Campbell shared: "This is a terrific initiative to share knowledge using technology to overcome geographical barriers. Stroke is a major health challenge in Africa. I was honoured to represent WSO on the program and enjoyed addressing the sophisticated questions in the live discussion."
Achieving our vision of a life free from stroke is a task that WSO cannot achieve alone. We are committed to building our partnerships at the global, regional and national level to scale up and deliver improvements in prevention, treatment and support to reduce the burden of stroke.
