Stroke changed Amy Edmunds’ life. Amy changed how stroke is viewed around the world. As a cryptogenic stroke survivor since 2002, Amy Edmunds established YoungStroke, Inc. as an outcome of her graduate studies in 2005 to benefit other survivors and their caregivers.
As an NIH-funded researcher, Amy evangelizes the unmet needs of young adult stroke survivors on such global platforms as the World Stroke Congress and the International Stroke Conference. She serves as the first American stroke survivor elected by international peers to the Board of Directors of the World Stroke Organization.
Last year, she launched Young Stroke Editorials as a quarterly publication to ignite discourse about stroke support organizations helping young adults who experience a stroke.
