We are very excited to introduce our very first Newell Scholar, Katie Powers. The Ossie Newell Foundation is very pleased to help fund Katie’s PhD research linked to the broader Return To Work After Stroke project. Thank you to everyone who has helped to raise funds over the past 21 months to make this possible. This is a very important day in the history of the Ossie Newell Foundation as we make the first step of many towards improving the lives of stroke survivors and their families through this important research.

The Ossie Newell Foundation

For stroke survivors like myself, the path to recovery is long, hard, and painful. We depend on people we never met before to care for us and help us recover, and behind the scenes the work of many professionals goes unrewarded and many times unnoticed.

The fundamental need for excellence in research into strokes and stroke recovery is clear. I have set up the Ossie Newell Foundation to try and contribute to this research in recognition of the debt of gratitude I owe those people who helped me on a long, hard but ultimately life-saving journey.
