Save the Date - Pediatric/Adolescent Stroke: Current Medical, Rehabilitation and School Considerations

Stroke occurring during childhood differs from stroke in the aging population in many ways. Service providers and parents both need to take into consideration planning for a lifetime of living with and growing up with the residual deficits of a stroke. This conference will address some of the current trends in stroke management and rehabilitation, including the opportunity to hear from parents about their children’s struggles and successes.

KEYNOTE: Amy Houtrow, MD, PhD, MPH. Dr Houtrowis the Chief of the Division of Pediatric Rehabilitation Medicine at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh and an Associate Professor of Physical Medical and Rehabilitation and Pediatrics at the University of Pittsburgh School Of Medicine.
