Healthy Living Community Program
May 15, 2019 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pmFree
Join us for this year’s Take Action on Healthy Living Community Programs.
May topic is: Brain Health
“In the Stroke Basics presentation, participants will gain a greater understanding of stroke, how it occurs, and how to recognize the signs of a stroke. We will discuss action steps an individual should take if they suspect they or someone else is having a stroke, and why immediate medical attention after a stroke is crucial. Additionally, the participants will understand the different modifiable and non-modifiable risk factors for stroke, and what steps they can take to lower their stroke risk. Finally, we will discuss the varying short and long term effects, prevention of future strokes, and how lasting stroke symptoms can present themselves as behaviors.”
