About the PSA Regional Stroke Conference

In recognition of National Stroke Awareness Month in May, the Pacific Stroke Association (PSA) and our co-sponsors present the Annual Regional Stroke Conference. In 2017, a 3-day Conference was presented on May 10 in Millbrae, and on May 18 and 19 at the Microsoft Conference Center in Mountain View.

GOAL OF THE CONFERENCE - The PSA Annual Regional Stroke Conference is planned to provide the most current information to nursing and other healthcare professionals who treat patients and families in all phases of stroke treatment. The goal is to share best clinical practices that have been developed to optimize patient outcomes at local stroke centers. For nurses, continuing education hours are provided at this annual conference.
