Officials have announced a $6.5 million statewide commitment to improve stroke response and care in Nebraska.

The American Heart Association/American Stroke Association said Tuesday the three-year initiative will build on the existing system of stroke care in the state.

A three-year, $5.35 million grant from the Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Trust is underpinning the effort, which is named Mission: Lifeline Stroke.
