The Texas Medical Association Stroke Project has educated thousands of the state's physicians, nurses, and other health care professionals on stroke prevention and acute stroke treatment as a means to improve the quality of life for all Texans.
Sponsored by TMA and the Texas Affiliate of the American Heart Association, the TMA Stroke Project offers speakers, materials, and online continuing medical education (CME) to combat the third leading cause of death and the leading cause of disability in Texas and the United States. The free CME program is endorsed by the Texas Department of Health and is available in a 1-, 2-, 3-, or 4-hour format.
More than 4,000 physicians have received stroke prevention and treatment training from the project, which is chaired by San Antonio neurologist Diane Solomon, MD, and funded through unrestricted, educational grants from DuPont Pharma, GlaxoWellcome, and Genentech, Inc.
