Kentucky Appalachian Rural Rehabilitation Network

Currently there are limited opportunities for individuals who have paralysis and mobility disabilities due to stroke and their families to come together and enjoy accessible outdoor activities that promote interaction and improve quality of life. The Kentucky Appalachian Rural Rehabilitation Network (KARRN) in collaboration with the Hazard Stroke Survivor and Caregiver Support group propose to hold an outdoor recreational and educational event to support individuals affected by stroke and their families living in Appalachian eastern Kentucky. This Rural Appalachia Stroke Camp will be hosted at Buckhorn State Resort Park in Perry County Kentucky and will include adapted recreational activities, educational activities and free health assessments. This camp will also provide an opportunity for students from multiple healthcare programs the opportunity to volunteer with the community members they are training to serve.
