When it comes to stroke, minutes can save lives

October 29 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

When somebody has a stroke, every second that goes by is crucial. As brain tissue and millions of neurons begin to fade away, time could not be more precious.

Stroke could happen on the golf course, at a restaurant, at a store where you shop — anywhere. Your readiness to spot stroke warning signs and call 911 could save a life or make the difference between a full recovery and a long-term disability. That’s why it’s so important to learn the signs of a stroke not only to help save a life, but to preserve independence, quality of life and precious memories.

For World Stroke Day on Oct. 29th, University of Florida Health wants to educate the community on the F.A.S.T. warning signs and discuss ways to reduce your risk for a stroke. Every minute counts in preventing brain damage. Hear from Anna Khanna, M.D., UF Health neurology during this live event. Attendees can ask questions, via the Zoom Q/A feature, during the live event.

Registration is required. CLICK HERE to register.
