Kansas Initiative for Stroke Survival Executive Board

Many of the members of the KISS executive board have participated in this initiative since 2011. There are members of varying backgrounds (Vascular Neurologist, Emergency Physicians, Intensivist, Hospitalists, Nurse Leadership, Stroke Coordinators, Administration and EMS) from different regions of the state.  Our common goal is to improve acute stroke care for our patients across the state.
