Lawrence Memorial Hospital and Lawrence Memorial Health Foundation will sponsor a dinner for Stroke Awareness to be held Thursday, May 3rd beginning at 6:00 p.m. The complimentary dinner will be held in the Ralph Joseph Education Building located at 1219 West Main Street, Walnut Ridge.
Eighty percent (80%) of strokes are preventable and a large percentage of the ones that happen are treatable with the right care, right away. It’s a matter of knowing what to do, taking action and spreading the word. Stroke is the 5th leading cause of death in the U.S. and is the leading preventable cause of disability. Please join us in recognition of Stroke Awareness month and receive information about how to prevent and detect strokes as well as the treatment that follows.
Katherine Prentice, LMH emergency room director, will speak about the disease and its risk factors for prevention. She will present the most current information with some new ways to recognize symptoms and expedite treatment.
Informational handouts will be provided and there will be a question and answer session. We hope you can join us and learn more.
Please make your reservation by Tuesday, May 1 by calling 870-886-1265 or 870-759-0421.
