Study: Stroke Victims Not Receiving Timely Diagnosis
While significant strides have been made to improve the response time of caregivers to stroke, a new study led by Adam Kelly, assistant professor of neurology, shows that a critical step in the process—imaging of the brain to determine the nature of the stroke—is still occurring too slowly at many hospitals.
Susan Groth Selected as AANP Fellow
Susan Groth, assistant professor of nursing, has been selected as a 2012 fellow of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners (AANP).
