STROKE AWARENESS & PREVENTION FAIR

Last updated 5 years ago

Did you know that stroke is the fourth leading cause of death in the United States and the leading cause of long-term disability?  To celebrate National Stroke Awareness Month, we hosted a stroke awareness and prevention health fair on May 29. We had an informative day with many knowledgeable physicians, nurses, dieticians and rehabilitation specialists. The event included give-aways, refreshments, and numerous activities from cooking demonstrations to stroke risk assessments.

We also had great guest speakers :

·      Kenneth Lynn, MD: “Life After Stroke”

·      Shuichi Suzuki, MD, PhD: “2013 What’s New in Neuroendovascular Treatment”

·      Johnny Delashaw, MD: “Subarachnoid Hemorrhage: Symptoms, Prevention, Treatment”

·      Lauri Young: Stroke Survivor

Thank you to all who attended. Remember to educate yourself because stroke can be largely preventable!
