Abstract: Video presents newscasts of Senator Mark Kirk’s prognosis after surviving a stroke, outlines the progress of his recovery, and discusses his enrollment in an intensive walking program and study for stroke patients at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago. The story also touches on how far and less unusual the topic of rehabilitation has come, citing how past politicians, including Presidents Woodrow Wilson, Franklin Roosevelt, and John F. Kennedy, would do anything in their power to conceal health issues while todays politicians are willing to be more open to the public and share an inside glimpse into the recovery process. Run time: 2 minutes 21 seconds.
