US Senator Mark Kirk had a stroke last year. He’s back at work, sometimes in a wheelchair. He has noticed a huge discrepancy in care for stroke victims in the US.

Tell me about it. I had decent insurance for rehab, but lots of patients don’t.  I changed cities to get better care.

Do you have stories of stroke inequality?
