The Essentia Health Regional Foundation is the recipient of a $75,000 grant from the Otto Bremer Foundation.

The funding will help training opportunities for EMS workers in rural areas.

Dr. Ziad Darkhaban- Interventional Neurology, Essentia: “We need any extra help possible in this effort for public gathering, for posters, or anything that helps spread the word about stroke and stroke management.”
