Since having a stroke at 39 years old, David Dansereau has become an advocate for proactive community stroke education and awareness. He has used his own stroke recovery journey and prior training and experience as a physical therapist and nutritionist to develop innovative home-based rehabilitation programs for stroke recovery, as well as an early intervention kid’s campaign for stroke prevention and awareness. He has served as a contributing columnist for Stroke Smart Magazine and is a stroke spokesperson for Tedy's Team of the American Stroke Association and the former vice president of the PFO Research Foundation, a patient-led initiative for better education about patent foramen ovale and its related conditions. He also created a website to provide resources including evidence-based health technologies and digital tools to keep stroke survivors and their caregivers on the right path to recovery.
