Dear WSO Friends,
As we begin to emerge from the long winter of the COVID-19 pandemic, harbingers of a return to a more normal situation are emerging. Two examples are the recent large gathering of stroke specialists at the European Stroke Organization conference in Lyon and the first in-person meeting of the participants in the WSO future leaders program in Dubai that was also attended by many more senior colleagues. These meetings are important because for the first time in more than two years many of us had the opportunity to directly interact with friends and colleagues. The upcoming World Stroke Congress in Singapore will provide the next opportunity for the stroke community to gather. The scientific program committee has put together an outstanding program and a large number of abstracts have already been submitted. The results of several important clinical trials will likely be presented. An outstanding faculty is being recruited for onsite presentations. I encourage you to attend the conference so we can move stroke care and information forward. Another virtual option will be made available to those who cannot attend in-person.
Prof. M. Fisher
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.
