Arkansas Acute Stroke Care Task Force (ASCTF)

The General Assembly of the State of Arkansas has long recognized the importance of improving stroke care in our state. In 2005, the legislature passed Act 663, stating that “the citizens of Arkansas are entitled to the maximum protection from the effects of strokes.” The bill mandated an Acute Stroke Care Task Force be formed to coordinate statewide efforts to combat the debilitating effects of stroke on Arkansans and make recommendations to the State Board of Health. Acute Stroke Task Force Creation Act 663.

The task force normally meets the first Thursday of every other month from 3 PM – 5 PM at the American Heart Association Building, 909 West Second Street, Little Rock, AR  72201.  If you have a question about the next meeting date, please email us at
