The Stroke Council is dedicated to advancing the science of stroke prevention, treatment and recovery through research and education. Members develop scientifically based publications, meetings, education, and training programs; they help translate stroke-related science into effective initiatives and products for the public, healthcare professionals, healthcare facilities and policymakers.

The CVSN Council accelerates the discovery, interpretation, and application of science to enhance cardiovascular health and treat cardiovascular diseases and stroke. The council helps develop scientific statements and advisories, guide professional education activities, provide scientific expertise, conduct research, translate findings, and promote evidence-based practices in clinical settings.
