Craig suffered a Brain Stem Stroke in 2015 that affected his speech and cognitive abilities. He had a right side ischemic stroke later that year that affected his left side ability to walk. Both of his strokes were due to diabetes. In 2017, Craig started working as a volunteer at Memorial Hermann Katy Hospital. He and the medical staff developed a program that was approved by the hospital for visiting stroke patients and their families at the bedside. In addition to the 12 hours he spends volunteering at the hospital each week, Craig serves on several Advisory Boards, attends monthly medical meetings on Stroke Patient Analysis, and co-leads monthly stroke support group meetings for survivors and family members. Craig worked in healthcare for over 30 years, during which time he managed facilities operations in long term care facilities, continuing care retirement communities, healthcare clinics, and acute care hospitals.
“I have worked with over 150 Stroke survivors and their Caregivers in the past 3 years. I have seen the confusion, uncertainty and devastation families endure when trying to make sense of this disease and the recovery process. I am convinced that MedRhythms, through its innovative approach and using digital therapy technology, will give Stroke families a new purpose in their lives. Together, the Patient Advisory Board and the Scientific Advisory Boards will improve the lives of Stroke survivors and will give MedRhythms a strong foundation for achieving success with patient care.”
