At the upcoming June 26, Ladies Night Out Program, the topic will be Stroke Awareness. Guest speaker will be Robin Jones, RN, MSN, CNRN, Stroke Program Coordinator, Mission Health System.
Stroke is the leading cause of disability in America. Prompt recognition of stroke symptoms and fast activation of the 9-1-1 system can get the potential stroke victim the treatment they need. Knowing how to Act F.A.S.T. with a potential stroke victim is their chance of survival and decreased disability.
