Channel 10 News covers stroke hope with Dr Erin Godecke

“In an Australian first, hundreds of WA stroke patients will be examined to find out how survivors make a better recovery.

Today researchers were given a funding boost to help with their vital work.”

WA Health Minister Roger Cook MLA visits Dr Erin Godecke, speech therapist and stroke researcher who collaborates with our medical director Dr David Blacker, selected by Minister Cook for her FutureHealth WA merit grant (NHMRC near miss), and stroke survivor Sally Attwater.

It was filmed in the Perron Institute neuro restorative room with speech and neuro rehabilitation equipment such as a balance machine and ableX – which the Minister was able to experience in action himself.
