Arkansas Acute Stroke Care Task Force (ASCTF)

The General Assembly of the State of Arkansas has long recognized the importance of improving stroke care in our state. In 2005, the legislature passed Act 663, stating that “the citizens of Arkansas are entitled to the maximum protection from the effects of strokes.” The bill mandated an Acute Stroke Care Task Force be formed to coordinate statewide efforts to combat the debilitating effects of stroke on Arkansans and make recommendations to the State Board of Health. Acute Stroke Task Force Creation Act 663.

The task force normally meets on the first Thursday every other month from 3 pm – 4:30 pm during the months of February, April, June, August, October, and December.

Note that meetings may be postponed or held via conference call only. If you have a question about these meetings and to confirm the meeting will occur, please email and include your return email address
