About the Center

Hopkins Association for Stroke Awareness (HASA)

 

Mission Statement:

HASA is a student-run group that aims to increase the awareness of stroke in both the Hopkins and Baltimore community. We closely collaborate with the American Heart Association Power to End Stroke program by attending local health fairs and hosting free blood pressure screenings at these events. At the JHMI stroke ward, we collaborate with the nurses and doctors to educate stroke patients on the lifestyle changes, medication information, and stroke rehabilitation. On the Homewood campus, we aim to raise awareness by hosting speaker events and educating the student body on the research involved to improve stroke treatments. 

Meetings are once every two weeks on Sundays, with general meetings alternating with journal clubs. Members are required to fulfill 10 hours of service.

HASA's website is: http://jhustroke.wix.com/jhuhasa
