Kirk working to improve care for stroke patients
- Photos (1)
U.S. Sen. Mark Kirk is pressing his agenda of improving care for stroke patients.
The Republican from Highland Park suffered a stroke in 2012. He's holding a press conference in Chicago on Sunday to discuss what he calls his "stroke agenda."
Kirk is expected to be joined by the president and CEO of the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago.
Kirk has estimated he underwent 50 rehabilitation sessions at RIC before he was able to work in Washington.
He says some low-income patients on Medicaid are offered just four sessions with a rehabilitation specialist. Kirk says that's not enough.
Kirk wants to set a national standard that gives patients the same opportunities to recover that he had.
He's also set to discuss health care research.
