Crossing boundaries to improve stroke care in Greater Cincinnati

The Greater Cincinnati Stroke Consortium (GCSC) is a team of doctors, nurses, nurse practitioners, therapists and other medical professionals from a variety of hospitals and rehabilitation systems within the Greater Cincinnati region.

The GCSC began as an education effort among those in medical fields impacted by stroke. These individuals, from multiple area hospital systems, would come together and share best practices for emergency stroke care. As need in the region grew, our members saw an opportunity to create a nonprofit organization with greater reach, dedication, and impact.

Now, we work to provide stroke education, awareness, and prevention information for our surrounding Cincinnati Tristate Region communities. This includes medical professionals, school children, and the public at large.

If you have been impacted by stroke, either personally or through a family member or loved one, please reach out to us at gcscstroke@gmail.com for resources and information.
