Meet our Chief Executive Officer
Dr Erin Lalor has been CEO of the National Stroke Foundation since 2002.
In her role as CEO, Dr Lalor advocates for stroke at a state and federal level as well as internationally as a Director of the World Stroke Organisation. She is the current chair of the National Vascular Disease Prevention Alliance and represents stroke on the Australian Chronic Disease Prevention Alliance.
Dr Lalor has a unique perspective and insight into stroke at all stages of recovery having worked as a speech pathologist in Western Australia. She went on to undertake research into stroke services and language impairment after stroke.
Dr Lalor completed her PhD in cognitive neuropsychology in 1997. Her background in research has enabled the organisation to take a leading role in developing stroke policy.
Before being appointed as CEO in 2002, Dr Lalor was head of the National Stroke Foundation office in Western Australia where she was a key player in the development of a stroke strategy for WA and the implementation of a plan for stroke services.
In the ten years Dr Lalor has been CEO, the organisation has increased significantly in size, revenue and profile. These achievements were recognised when Dr Lalor was nominated as a finalist in the Victorian Telstra Business Woman of the year Award in the community and government category in 2007.
Dr Lalor drives the Foundation’s dedication to increasing community awareness, improving access to treatment and services, supporting stroke survivors and identifying and addressing gaps in stroke research.
