Nags Head, N.C. – On Tuesday, October 5, 2021 The Outer Banks Hospital held its first Stroke Support Network. For the inaugural meeting, six community members and their caregivers congregated via Zoom to share survivorship stories and words of encouragement. This group was formed by hospital team members with a shared vision to offer support resources, fellowship amongst stroke survivors, and navigation of life after a stroke. This group will continue to meet on the first Tuesday of every month. For more information or to join, please contact Robin South at [email protected] or (252) 449-4554.
