The Houston Methodist Neuroscience & Spine Center at Sugar Land is offering a stroke survivors and caregivers support group. The group allows people affected by stroke to come together and share their experiences, ask questions about recovery and help others with their journey.


The sessions are scheduled every other month from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. beginning on Feb. 19 in the hospital’s Main Pavilion Conference Rooms B and C.


“It may not get as much attention as other serious diseases, but stroke is the fifth leading cause of death and the primary cause of serious long-term disability for Americans,” said Larry Tran, M.D., board-certified neurologist and medical director of the Houston Methodist Neuroscience & Spine Center at Sugar Land. “The support group can be beneficial to anyone who has experienced stroke – whether personally or with a family member.”


The hospital’s Stroke Support Group Series meets throughout the year to provide continuing support in a safe space. “Our goal is to provide a resource and community for stroke survivors and caregivers, recognizing that stroke affects an extensive amount of people,” said Tran.
