Club Dinner Meeting – Stroke Awareness and Prevention
September 11, 2018 @ 6:15 pm - 8:15 pm
Topic: Stroke Awareness and Prevention
Speaker: John Carson …Strokesafe Foundation Volunteer
The Stroke Foundation is a charity working to prevent, treat and beat stroke. This program is NOT government funded. It is made possible by the support of our generous donors.
Our StrokeSafe volunteer speakers are trained in public speaking and experienced in delivering life-saving messages about stroke.
Many of our volunteer speakers have either had a stroke themselves or are close to someone who has. While they will present common information about stroke and its prevention, they will also draw on their own personal experiences so every talk is different – and very powerful.
John Carson will cover a range of issues that will help your organisation or group better understand stroke and how it can be prevented. This includes:
- What stroke is – What happens when someone is having a stroke and the different types of stroke.
- How to recognise the signs of stroke – Learn the vital FAST signs which will help you recognise when someone is having a stroke.
- What to do if someone is having a stroke – If you or someone else experiences the signs of stroke, no matter how long they last, call 000 immediately.
- How to prevent stroke – Steps that can be taken to better understand and reduce the risk of having a stroke.
