Linda Stephen Joins Nebraska State Stroke Association as Executive Director
The Nebraska State Stroke Association (NSSA; www.NebraskaStroke.org) is proud to introduce Linda Stephen as the new Executive Director! Assuming her new role at NSSA in August, Stephen brings more than 15 years of public relations and community outreach for national and local nonprofits, international agencies, and book publishers on topics that include aging in place and remodeling homes for accessibility. She looks forward to leading the organization in continuing its work in promoting public awareness of stroke prevention and support here in Lincoln and statewide.
More than 80 percent of strokes can be prevented. The mission of the Nebraska State Stroke Association is to serve Nebraskans through stroke prevention, education, advocacy, and support services. For more than 30 years, NSSA has been providing education and outreach on the signs of stroke – and serving as a resource to enhance the quality of life of those affected by stroke. Stroke is the fourth leading cause of death in Nebraska and the leading cause of disability in the US.
