St. Anthony has strokes on the mind

Interactive event hosts stroke fair

Posted

May is National Stroke Awareness Month, and Lakewood's St. Anthony Hospital kicked off the month by hosting its Stroke Aware Fair on May 4. 

The event provided hospital staff and visitors the opportunity to get their blood pressure tested, learn about risk factors that increase the likelihood of strokes, and show off some of the latest tech that is tackling the problem. 

"Our health is so important and so many people don't take it seriously," said Terri Kiernan, neuroscience nurse practitioner and comprehensive stroke center manager. "People should be exercising more, be aware of their diet, and don't do things like smoke." 

The main takeaway of the event was people should be proactive in preventing a stroke so they can spend time with the people they love, Kiernan said.
