Kevin Nakawatase Stroke
Kevin Nakawatase Stroke Community Transformation (KNSCT) provides community summits for stroke survivors to bridge the gap between individuals navigating their recovery journey within a community and the essential resources needed for a smoother rehabilitation process. As a stroke survivor himself, Kevin understands the journey that one must go on to reach their goals and recover. He recognizes that the recovery process is not linear and extends far beyond the systems currently in place.
The plethora of organizations including hospitals and rehab centers that have partaken in the recovery process have done a tremendous job trying to help the 101 million survivors globally. However, the World Stroke Organization suggests that strokes could lead to 10 million deaths a year by 2050. As the World Stroke Organization warns of a potential surge in stroke-related deaths, there is an absence of effective coaching practices for survivors, adequate funding, and rehab accessibility within this area.
Kevin has over 25 years of experience in marketing and sales coaching. As a sports enthusiast and active team member for several sports teams within his community, when Kevin had his stroke back in 2014, his passion for sports and career took on a new dimension. Amidst the obstacles of his personal recovery, Kevin identified that the gap within the rehabilitation process lay somewhere between finding support within a community and streamlined access to essential recovery resources. Thus, Kevin created KNSCT.

My name is Kevin Nakawatase, I created my company, KNSCT, to raise awareness and create a community for stroke survivors.
