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.

Ladies Night Out is a partnership between Macon County Public Health and Angel Medical Center to provide free monthly programs on a variety of health topics for women with an emphasis on the importance of regular health screenings. The Franklin Bi-Lo and Fatz of Franklin are corporate sponsors of the programs and provide snacks and door prizes each month. These programs are held the fourth Tuesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. in the cafeteria at AMC. For more information about Ladies Night Out, contact Dawn Wilde Burgess at (828)349-2426.
