Jackson Hospital to Host Stroke Seminar for American Stroke Month

Jackson HospitalIn recognition of American Stroke Month, Richard Salazar, MD, Neurologist with The Jackson Clinic, will present a stroke seminar on Tuesday, May 24, on the Jackson Hospital campus, 1725 Pine Street. The event will take place on the 11th floor of the Goode Building.

Along with learning more about your risk factors for stroke, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in cholesterol, blood pressure and glucose screenings, all for only $20. The screenings begin at 10 a.m. with the luncheon and seminar starting at noon.

Stroke is the third leading cause of death in the United States and a leading cause of serious disability. That is why it is so important to reduce your risk factors, know the warning signs, and know how to respond quickly and properly if warning signs do occur.

The Joint Commission, in conjunction with The American Heart Association/American Stroke Association, has recognized Jackson Hospital with Advanced Certification for Primary Stroke Centers. This achievement signifies Jackson’s dedication to fostering better outcomes for patients and demonstrates that their program meets critical elements of performance to achieve long-term success in improving outcomes for stroke patients.
