We are very proud of our colleague, Dr. Erika Marulanda-Londoño, for winning the Bernard J. Tyson Career Development Award at the International Stroke Conference 2020, held February 19–21 in Los Angeles, California. Dr. Marulanda-Londoño has truly made a difference in the landscape of stroke care in Florida through her work on hospital certification standards. During the conference, she gave a lecture on differences in ischemic stroke metrics by hospital stroke certification status, using data gathered through the Florida Stroke Registry initiative.
Congratulations, Dr. Marulanda-Londoño!
