The North Carolina Stroke Association (NCSA) has named Regina Hartung of Charlotte to its board of directors. Hartung is senior director of service lines for Presbyterian Healthcare, including neurosciences and pulmonary/critical care. She oversees strategic direction of the Presbyterian Stroke Center - the first stroke program in North Carolina to achieve system-wide Primary Stroke Center accreditation by The Joint Commission. A long-time advocate for stroke education and prevention, Hartung promotes quality clinical care, community collaboration and healthy lifestyles as the keys to lowering the occurrence of stroke in North Carolina. She also serves as Presbyterian’s executive lead for Charlotte’s annual Walk from Obesity and as a trustee for Girls on the Run Charlotte.
“The North Carolina Stroke Association is extremely fortunate to benefit from Regina’s experience as we work toward expanding our stroke education and prevention programs across North Carolina,” said Beth Parks, executive director of the NCSA.
In addition to Hartung, the NCSA named two other new members to its board, as well as its 2011 officers.
