The prize is awarded to doctors who have done the best in the considerable progress in caring for stroke patients in their country.
The "Spirit of Excellence Award" was awarded to professor Gdovinová on the basis of her activities to increase awareness of vascular strokes, in particular thanks to the campaign Time is a Brain and activities leading to increase the level of care provided to these patients.
"I consider this award as the appreciation of all those who have made great progress in the treatment of stroke in Slovakia, while our country has qualitatively advanced towards the Czech Republic in the CMP treatment, which thanks to the Structural Funds resources was far ahead of us. It is a pleasure to win the award and at the same time it commits me to continue in this work, because there is still a lot to be done to improve," says prof. Zuzana Gdovinová, M.D., CSc., FESO.
