Community Education

The Johns Hopkins Stroke Center Community Outreach Program, led by Dr. Victor Urrutia, was created in 2008 as an innovative approach for assessing for risk factors in the community and educating people about stroke and how to prevent it.

The program offers biweekly stroke screening and education sessions at the Northeast Market. Education is delivered 1:1, based on personal risk factors identified during a screening. Since the start of the program, we have screened approximately 1,300 people.

We have developed strong collaborations within our institution and the community in effort to reach those most at risk for stroke. We are currently studying the impact of these screening/education efforts.

The Northeast Market is currently closed for renovations. The stroke screenings will resume after it has reopened.
