Centered at Massachusetts General Hospital, our team aims to work with MGH patients and the public community to educate others about stroke. Dr. Natalia Rost frequently works with MGH, the American Heart Association, the greater Boston community, and many other organizations locally and internationally to spread awareness and educate others on stroke risk and recovery.

Featured here is the story of Jessica Diaz, a former stroke patient at MGH, who shares her inspiring story of recovery and newfound awareness of stroke risk. Dr. Rost, as her attending neurologist, helped Jessica on her road of recovery and teamed up with her to share their story.
