Dr. Nandi’s father suffered from a devastating stroke in 2008 and was never the same again. Sadly, we lost him on July 18, 2017, after a near ten-year fight.
Dr. Uma Nandi was a brilliant polymer chemist, father, husband and son. Dr. Nandi held several patents for his pioneering work. He was also an amazing cook and singer, a true Renaissance man! He had a devastating stroke over 9 years ago which changed his life forever.
Without the love and advocacy of his family, and the groundbreaking treatment facilities available to him, Uma would not have lived to see the birth of his grandsons and the love of his community.

INCIDENCE OF STROKE
Dr. Nandi Charities uses Stroke funds to make a significant impact on the health disparities in metro Detroit. We focus on those receiving little education about prevention and treatment of stroke either because of a lack of access to services or lack of health-related knowledge. We also increase access to early treatment of stroke, to decrease the burden of disability that this disease can cause. Financial Contribution is also made to The American Stroke Association
