Perry County stroke support group joins national registry

The Perry County Stroke Support Group is now registered with the National Stroke Association.

The support group was established two years ago as part of a larger program known as the Kentucky Care Coordination for Community Transition (KC3T) Program. KC3T is a collaboration between UK Center of Excellence in Rural Health (CERH), UK College of Health Sciences (CHS) and Appalachian Regional Healthcare (ARH) that offers patient navigation services to help individuals who have had a stroke, transient ischemic attack or other neurological condition, to successfully transition back into their community. The program also heavily involves patients’ caregivers.
