The Maine Brain Aneurysm Awareness Committee was pleased to award the 6th annual “KAT-Walk & Karo-5K Research Grant for 2018” to Dr. Robert Ecker and Dr. David Seder of the Maine Medical Center Neuroscience Institute at the Brain Aneurysm Awareness event on September 8, 2018 in Portland, Maine.
Clinicians at the MMC Neurosciences Institute are constantly seeking new and better ways to provide care for aneurysm and hemorrhagic stroke survivors. Leveraging data is integral to improving outcomes in so many areas of medicine. With generous funding from the Maine Brain Aneurysm Awareness Committee, MMC Neuroscience Institute will establish an apparatus to measure and analyze data from our own aneurysm/hemorrhagic stroke patients, enabling clinicians to track patterns around what it truly means to “return to normal.” Data points may include: regained independence, quality of life, headache, short-term memory loss, fatigue and concentration. The ability to track this information empowers clinicians and arms the MMC Neurosciences Institute with data specific to our own unique aneurysm and hemorrhagic stroke population, right here in Maine.
Thank you to everyone who donates and supports our efforts to increase Brain Aneurysm Awareness and Research. We look forward to continuing to help provide funds for critical Brain Aneurysm research that is being done in Maine and northern New England.
