Stroke Awards and Lectures

Updated:Apr 8,2014
The AHA/ASA Scientific Councils' awards acknowledge significant achievements in cardiovascular diseases and stroke, ranging from basic research to service to the councils and the association.  These awards recognize the achievements of researchers, scientists, clinicians, nurses and allied health professionals throughout their careers.  They also provide opportunities for financial rewards and funding to attend AHA scientific meetings.

The Stroke Council proudly sponsors numerous awards associated with AHA meetings and student scholarships, each of which honors researchers, early career investigators or medical students.  Please click on an award link for more information, including eligibility criteria and application instructions.
