Stuart is investigating the benefits of improved fitness for stroke survivors through a pilot study funded by the Veterans Affairs Maryland Health Care System. “We’re taking these classes out of a hospital setting and promoting socialization and wellness,” Stuart notes. “Having a support group of peers to cheer you on is very reinforcing.”
